Not too hard to wire up.  The trickiest part is realizing that
listing children of a snapshot cannot use SNAPSHOT_LIST_ROOTS,
and that we overloaded that bit to also mean SNAPSHOT_LIST_DESCENDANTS;
we use that bit to decide which iteration to use, but don't want
the existing counting/listing functions to see that bit.

+static int
+qemuDomainSnapshotNumChildren(virDomainSnapshotPtr snapshot,

+    struct qemud_driver *driver = snapshot->domain->conn->privateData;


I've now pushed 1-7.

I would tend to be a bit more defensive myself byt not dereferencing 3
layers of pointer as the first instructions in the function, but
if you're confident the structures can't be missing :-)

Yes, src/libvirt.c already validated that snapshot, snapshot->domain, and snapshot->domain->conn are all correct and non-NULL. We do this same sort of 3-level validation in several other APIs, relying on libvirt.c to have filtered out invalid objects in advance of calling the hypervisor callback.
