Probably shouldn't be necessary as the virBufferSetError already frees
the internal buffer.
Maybe for sure. Relying on other function's error handling(especially
when it is a deep calling line) is a little not that sure.

Peter's right that it wasn't strictly necessary, given the fact that any OOM error with virBuffer frees memory at that point, so there is nothing further to free here. And Hai's right that relying on an obscure feature of the current implementation of the called function is harder to maintain than explicitly cleaning up after ourselves here, even if our cleanup happens to be a no-op due to the called function. I kept this line as-is, considering that the failure case is unexpected in the first place, so the efficiency of avoiding a no-op is much less important than robustness if the virBuffer implementation changes in the future.

return NULL;

Now pushed.
