Detected by cppcheck, the previous function VIR_REALLOC_N(mounts, nmounts+1)
can make sure mounts is a none null value, so it is redundant to check if
mounts is null.
VIR_REALLOC_N is only executed inside the loop. Although it is unlikely,
in theory there can be zero iterations of the loop, in which case
'mounts' will be NULL at the point qsort is called.

NACK, the check for NULL is correct

Hi Daniel,
My comment is wrong, but the following judgement should make sure
mounts is non null:
         if (!(mounts[nmounts++] = strdup(mntent.mnt_dir))) {
If the previous VIR_REALLOC_N can't make sure 'mounts' is non null,
whether we need to check 'mounts' to avoid dereferencing a NULL
pointer in here again, for instance:

if (!mounts || !(mounts[nmounts++] = strdup(mntent.mnt_dir))) {

Thanks for your comment.


             return -1;
That is ensuring that the pointer in the array element value is non-NULL.
The "if (mounts) qsort(...)"  check is against the array itself, rather
than the element.
