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.

* src/lxc/lxc_container.c: remove redundant check.

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))) {
The check for VIR_REALLOC_N ensures that mounts is non-NULL *if* there
is at least 1 iteration of the while() loop.  The "if (mounts) qsort"
code is *outside* the while() loop, and has to cope with the scenario
where the while() loop had *zero* iterations.
Hmm, I just saw codes again, it indeed is a issue, however, I fixed a
error place :-(

  882     if (mounts)
  883         qsort(mounts, nmounts, sizeof(mounts[0]),
  884               lxcContainerChildMountSort);
*Notes: if mounts is NULL, the above 'if' clause can't be executed, but
the following
codes will be run.*
  886     for (i = 0 ; i<  nmounts ; i++) {
  887         VIR_DEBUG("Umount %s", mounts[i]);
*Notes: dereference a NULL pointer in here.*
The only way for nmounts being nonzero is mounts being non NULL;
Indeed, Michal, thanks for your comment :)

Thus, if mounts is NULL, there is no way for nmounts being something
else than 0; Hence, the body of this for will not be executed.

I think the code is good as-is.
