Re: [Libvir] [PATCH] check file format in virsh attach/detach-device



Hi Daniel, Rich

Thanks for reviewing and suggestion.

I adopt (b) in consideration Daniel's suggestion.
 --> Error message exists already.

This patch fixes virParseXMLDevice() for attach-device
and virDomainXMLDevID() for detach-device.

Thanks,
Masayuki Sunou.
