Functionally this all looks fine.

>From a style point of view, we should keep consistency with the other
virEventAddHandle func in terms of typing / param ordering. I prefer
to have a typedef for the 'freefunc', even though its trivial, because
I hate reading function prototypes :-) Whether we have the freefunc,
before or after the 'void opaque' in the register method I don't
really mind one way or the other as long as we're consistent. Having
the freefunc last is probably best, since its very often just going
to be NULL.
