Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] introduce VIR_CLOSE to be used rather than close()

No change in src/libvirt_private.syms?

Was waiting for the linker to complain and it did not.

My understanding is that the *.syms files are important mainly if you build with --with-driver-modules, but that defaults to no. Without it, you get a single binary (where the link is satisfied) rather than multiple .so (where the .syms file is essential to avoid link failures in the various driver modules), so the default build hides whether you really need to add it.

Given that danpb's recent 4-patch series to add auditing points had to export a lot more symbols, we obviously don't do much testing of module builds. So I'd feel better seeing it added, even if you haven't yet configured in a manner that would provoke link failure without it.
