[libvirt] virDomainGetMaxVcpus does not work as expected


When calling virDomainGetMaxVcpus
(http://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt.html#virDomainGetMaxVcpus) on
an inactive domain, I receive this error:

scala> res2.getMaxVcpus()
libvirt: Domain Config error : Requested operation is not valid: domain is not running
org.libvirt.LibvirtException: Requested operation is not valid: domain is not running
        at org.libvirt.ErrorHandler.processError(ErrorHandler.java:31)
        at org.libvirt.ErrorHandler.processError(ErrorHandler.java:46)
        at org.libvirt.Domain.getMaxVcpus(Domain.java:571)
        at .<init>(<console>:13)

(this is from Java, but that doesn't matter)

The docs say:

> If the guest is inactive, this is basically the same as
> virConnectGetMaxVcpus(). If the guest is running this will reflect
> the maximum number of virtual CPUs the guest was booted with.

But, apparently, all the driver implementations for
virDomainGetMaxVcpus forward to

$ git grep --show-function 'GetVcpusFlags.*AFFECT_LIVE'
src/esx/esx_driver.c=esxDomainGetMaxVcpus(virDomainPtr domain)
src/esx/esx_driver.c:    return esxDomainGetVcpusFlags(domain, (VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_LIVE |
src/openvz/openvz_driver.c=static int openvzDomainGetMaxVcpus(virDomainPtr dom)
src/openvz/openvz_driver.c:    return openvzDomainGetVcpusFlags(dom, (VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_LIVE |
src/qemu/qemu_driver.c=qemuDomainGetMaxVcpus(virDomainPtr dom)
src/qemu/qemu_driver.c:    return qemuDomainGetVcpusFlags(dom, (VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_LIVE |
src/test/test_driver.c=testDomainGetMaxVcpus(virDomainPtr domain)
src/test/test_driver.c:    return testDomainGetVcpusFlags(domain, (VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_LIVE |
src/vbox/vbox_tmpl.c=vboxDomainGetMaxVcpus(virDomainPtr dom)
src/vbox/vbox_tmpl.c:    return vboxDomainGetVcpusFlags(dom, (VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_LIVE |

AFAICS, this was introduced with

    vcpu: make old API trivially wrap to new API

Whereas the function's contract was documented earlier by

commit b412cfadb502c76df095c2c4548c27abf7c4873f

To be honest, I'm not sure whether this worked as described at some
time in the past _at all_.

How to fix this? Change the documentation or the flag?
