4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

commit cf346d5bd4b9d61656df2f72565c9b354ef3ca0d upstream.

Both register_perl_scripting() and register_python_scripting() allocate
this variable, fix it by checking if it already was.
