If some test case fails you're probably going to be using
VIR_TEST_DEBUG, gdb or a combination of the two to figure out
what went wrong, so I'm not convinced testing the functions
separately would add much value.

Sure, adding more test cases is always good :)

I'm not sure what this driver_override you refer to is
supposed to be though, care to expand on that?
