  Actually there is one thing I would revert from your patch it's the
change from int to virSchedParameterType in structs and parameters. Basically the problem comes from the fact that C does not define the
size of an enum, so some compiler may use 8 bits to encode it, others
may use 32bits, or worse say you add a new error value -1 it could change from 8 to 32 bits breaking ABI compatibility.
  I really prefer to use int for the virSchedParameterType in public
structs and public functions parameters for this reason, it's far
from ideal, but I prefer this than having weird ABI incompatibilities
due to compiler variations :-)

Fair enough ... I didn't know that about enums actually.
