Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] numatune: setting --mode does not work well

I see your point, yes, you are right, a leak might occur and I'll fix it
in the cleanup phase. Just to be correct, it is not related to the
error-check you pointed out. It is because up until now, numatune was
only a local duplicate pointer to an allocated memory which was
referenced by *numatunePtr (passed as argument). And this was the core
of the bug, working directly with a pointer passed to the function. If
any problem occures, that pointer should stay untouched, that's why I
slightly changed the allocation, thus unfortunately creating a
possibility for the leak. So I'm putting another 'if(create)' clause
inside the cleanup phase in PATCHv2.

When trying to set numatune mode directly using virsh numatune command,
correct error is raised, however numatune structure was not deallocated,
thus resulting in creating an empty numatune element in the guest XML,
if none was present before. Running the same command aftewards results
in a successful change with broken XML structure. Patch fixes the
deallocation problem as well as checking for invalid attribute
combination VIR_DOMAIN_NUMATUNE_PLACEMENT_AUTO + a nonempty nodeset.

You moved this error above the allocation, but there is another 'goto cleanup'
possible after the successful allocation of 'numatune':

      if (nodeset) {
          numatune->memory.nodeset = virBitmapNewCopy(nodeset);
          if (!numatune->memory.nodeset)
              goto cleanup;
          if (placement == -1)

If virBitmapNewCopy fails and numatune was allocated by this function, it's
