The function lu_close_dump_state() will use talloc_asprintf() without
checking whether the allocation succeeded. In the unlikely case we are
out of memory, we would dereference a NULL pointer.

As we already computed the filename in lu_get_dump_state(), we can store
the name in the lu_dump_state. This is avoiding to deal with memory file
in the close path and also reduce the risk to use the different
filename.

This bug was discovered and resolved using Coverity Static Analysis
Security Testing (SAST) by Synopsys, Inc.

Fixes: c0dc6a3e7c41 ("tools/xenstore: read internal state when doing live upgrade")
