Existing, but the { } here aren't necessary since there's only one
statement after the if. It escapes the syntax-check check because
there's two lines in the function call...

And as I assume you know - having this go to cleanup is going to cause a
problem since it's designed to clean up on failure assuming that this
succeeded, right?

I would have been OK with a posted diff to squash in...

In any case, at this point only @def and @mchiid would need to be
cleaned up. If you move the mchiid generation to after this line, then
the failure scenario here could be virDomainDefFree(def) and return ret;
(or NULL).

Whichever way works - the rest of the code looks OK, but I can wait for
the next version.

Since Patches 1 & 2 are OK and for the most part Patches 4-9 are fine
and would seem to be "movable" to just before current patch 10. That
patch also adjusts vboxDomainDefineXMLFlags, so for me it became a logic
point to at least be able to push some of the patches before you post a
a v3. For the nits found in patch 4-9 - I can make the simple
adjustments noted before pushing. That way the next series is smaller.
