The cleanup section of qemuProcessStart() does a call to
qemuProcessStop() so I assumed it was reversed correctly.
Could you give a scenario where VIR_HOOK_QEMU_OP_RELEASE would not be
reached if a jump to cleanup occurs ? I think it's fine to do this as in
any case (fail or normal stop) the domain was marked "shutdown" and
freed only in qemuProcessStop() where I placed the "release" hook.

That would imply the ressources allocated by the PREPARE hook should be
deconfigured differently whether they where used once or not. And the
user should take great care of the SUBOP provided to it's script,
because in a failure situation it would receive two RELEASE calls, one
with VIR_HOOK_SUBOP_FAILED then a second with VIR_HOOK_SUBOP_END.

Given that failure seems to be handled already, maybe it's sufficient
not to use an other SUBOP. It's depends if you feel like adding one more
feature.

Thanks Daniel!
