[libvirt] possible bug in virConnectGetLibVersion()



I need to get libvirt version. Using function
virConnecGetLibVersion(), I've return message like

   errore: unknown error

My system settings are:

   Kernel: 2.6.33
   Hypervisor: QEMU 0.12.3
   Libvirt: 0.7.6 (cloned from git)

The code that fails is in src/libvirt.c:1656

   =========================================================
       if (conn->driver->libvirtVersion) {
           ret = conn->driver->libvirtVersion(conn, libVer);
           if (ret < 0)
               goto error;
           return ret;
       }

       *libVer = LIBVIR_VERSION_NUMBER;
       ret = 0;

   error:
       virDispatchError(conn);
       return ret;
   }
   =========================================================

I noticed that conn->driver->libvirtVersion is NULL for all the
hypervisors except the remote one (src/remote/remote_driver.c), hence
it always dispatch an unknown error. I checked the current libvirt
code (always cloned from git), and the bug is also present.

Is this a bug, or this is a well known behavior?

If this is a bug, a possible solution could be to add the code line

   return ret;

before "error:" label. This is my debugged code

   =========================================================
       if (conn->driver->libvirtVersion) {
           ret = conn->driver->libvirtVersion(conn, libVer);
           if (ret < 0)
               goto error;
           return ret;
       }

       *libVer = LIBVIR_VERSION_NUMBER;
       ret = 0;
       return ret; /* POSSIBLE BUG SOLUTION */

   error:
       virDispatchError(conn);
       return ret;
   }
   =========================================================

Have a good day!
