No, that is incorrect.


virConnectListAllNodeDevices() 1) allocates the memory for you (you must
later free it with iterated calls to virNodeDeviceFree()), and 2) the
return value of the API is the number of node devices that were found
(i.e. how many elements are in the array), or -1 if there was an error.
