Um. checking snprintf's result was not redundant.

In that case, no problem.
In that context, your saying printf is redundant makes sense ;-)
Will do.

Besides, that's more consistent with what's done e.g., in

  src/lxc_conf.h:    char *logDir;
  src/qemu_conf.h:    char *logDir;
  src/uml_conf.h:    char *logDir;
