NACK This is a pointless obfuscationWould you mind spending a few words to explain why you feel that's the case? Having a function where you perform both allocation and initialization of your data structure is a pretty common
As of now, nothing special is initialized in the structure. If you are going to need initialize something in the future, please mention it also in the commit message, not just the cover letter. This makes the obfuscation pointful.
pattern both outside and inside libvirt, and while it adds one layer of indirection it also improves flexibility and encapsulation, which makes it IMHO well worth it.
I am not a fan of adding code just in case we might need it in the future, which is what this patch looks like to a lazy reviewer that does not read cover letters for cleanups/refactors. Jan
