You allocate the correct number of params here, but ...

... you always access all 3 of them and you go through this list.
Unfortunately this means that in case you want to change only one value
(e.g. hard limit), you will dereference NULL couple of lines later and
it will crash libvirtd (tried). To test this, you can try running 'virsh
memtune rhel6 --hard-limit 1000020' in your previous scenario.
