  Humpf, that's just the opposite of the other parts of libvirt I wrote.
Could you justify ? 
  It's hard to catch it's a calloc or a malloc call, and hence notice
if it was initialized or not. The extra memset line makes it clear, plus
it will allow me more easilly to plug in libxml2 memory wrapper.
  I doubt the patch is related to other parts needed for the restart code
it's just coding policy and IMHO different from teh rest of libvirt.
