While using the function libvirt_list_storagepools() I found that if 
all the storage pools on the host node are active, the function doesn't 
return the list of storage pools but it gives the following error 

names in virConnectListDefinedStoragePools must not be NULL

Expected result, return an array of all the storage pools names on the 
host node regardless of their status (active or inactive).

virsh output for the equivalent command:

$ virsh pool-list --all

 Name State Autostart
 default active yes
 resources active yes
 templates active yes
 virtual_machines_hdd active yes
 virtual_machines_ssd active yes

Also in the same scenario (all storage pools active) 
libvirt_list_inactive_storagepools() gives the same error detailed 
above. I wouldn't say this is actually wrong but wouldn't it be better 
if these functions returns FALSE instead if there are no results (-no 
inactive storage pools in this case-)?
