The logging system encodes messages using the utf-8 encoding by
default. So sometimes it's necessary to re-encode lines when
non unicode characters are thrown up by the command outputs.

This patch re-encodes lines of text that will be passed to the
logging system on the track_process function on kvm_utils.
