Trying to keep a fresh an macroscopic view and not think about my
previous myopic look at the code... I got too hung up on the "error"
part (as in reporting an error in an || condition even though
conceptually one would have been reported)...

I spent some cycles considering if there was any "odd possibility" that
the @cb could be called twice w/ some virStreamAbort interaction, but I
was able to convince myself that it shouldn't be possible. Still just
want to "be sure" since virFDStreamCloseInt uses VIR_STREAM_EVENT_ERROR
and also sets abortCallbackCalled to ensure it couldn't be called again.
Is that something perhaps that could/should be done here as well -
defensive type programming?

In any case, I'm sufficiently convinced this is fine, but figured I'd
ask as well!

Would it be a bad time to point out that virFDStreamJoinWorker returning
-1 and setting ret = -1 in the caller doesn't really do anything since
ret is immediately overwritten?
