Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] conf: Report sensible error for invalid disk name

The error "... but the cause is unknown" appeared for XMLs similar to

Notice unsupported disk type (for the driver), but also no address
specified. The first part is not a problem and we should not abort
immediately because of that, but the combination with the address
unknown was causing an unspecified error.

Some of the call paths of this function the callers do their own error reporting (see src/qemu/qemu_command.c) based on the return value. This should be consolidated.

In case of this function I'd probably rather go for adding the error message on the appropriate places as the inability to parse the disk ID is ignored on some calls (maybe that should be fixed in the first place and than the error reporting is okay here.)

      for (i = 0; *ptr; i++) {
          idx = (idx + (i < 1 ? 0 : 1)) * 26;
