[PULL for-5.0 4/5] qga: Fix undefined C behavior

Subject: [PULL for-5.0 4/5] qga: Fix undefined C behavior

From: Eric Blake <address@hidden>

The QAPI struct GuestFileWhence has a comment about how we are
exploiting equivalent values between two different integer types
shared in a union. But C says behavior is undefined on assignments to
overlapping storage when the two types are not the same width, and
indeed, 'int64_t value' and 'enum QGASeek name' are very likely to be
different in width.  Utilize a temporary variable to fix things.
