Oops.  Thanks.

However, the original code is ugly enough that I have rewritten
it to make it clear that regardless of the virConfSetValue outcome,
we don't free that variable:

    if (diskVal->list != NULL) {
        bool err = (virConfSetValue(conf, "disk", diskVal) < 0);
        diskVal = NULL;
        if (err)
            goto no_memory;
    }
    VIR_FREE(diskVal);

Here's the adjusted part of that c-set:

Subject: [PATCH] remove useless code

* src/bridge.c (brAddTap): Remove redundant errno=ENOMEM assignment
after failed strdup.
* src/cgroup.c (virCgroupFree): Remove redundant *group=NULL assignment
after VIR_FREE(*group).
* src/lxc_driver.c (lxcShutdown): Likewise.
* src/xen_unified.c (xenUnifiedClose): Likewise.
* src/xm_internal.c (xenXMDomainConfigFormat): Rewrite disk-
and net-config-setting code to be clearer.
