Technically, any loop over readdir must first set errno to 0, then call
readdir, and if it is NULL, check if errno is still 0.  Otherwise, you
can miss subtle readdir failures.

I'd rather get out of the habit of stack-allocating PATH_MAX bytes,
since it is not portably guaranteed to fit in a page of memory, and
especially since you are using recursion and will chew through lots of
stack in a deep hierarchy.

Rather, we can construct path via virAsprintf(), and VIR_FREE() it later.

But other than the missed error handling, this patch looks like the
right technical approach for the problem.
