If we want consistent behaviour, there's plenty more visit methods
that need updating beyond these two.  eg input_type_int64 will
leave '*obj' untouched on error.

In fact if we want to have '*obj' given a NULL value on error,
then it seems we should instead add code to 'qapi-visit-core.c'
to always initialize '*obj' to NULL, instead of doing it in
qmp-input-visitor.c That way all visitor implementations get
the same behaviour

Alternatively, we could say that '*obj' should never be touched
on error paths, in which case we've a bunchof cleanup todo
in qmp_input_visitor to avoid splattering *obj.
