Oops, you can't change public structs. Any combination of an app
and libvirt
library that would not have the same definition of this struct
would fail.

Oh, my bad. How about a new API like:

int virStoragePoolGetInfoFlags (virStoragePoolPtr pool,
virTypedParameterPtr params,
int *nparams,
unsigned int flags);

With the param fields like:


Assuming one wants to get more info about a pool in future, we would
need a new API like this, with no suffering from not able to change
to public struct.

Fortunately no other part of this patch series appears to rely on this
extra field. Just remove this addition& the place in storage_driver.c
which sets it. The rest of this patch series can still be reviewed
as is

The 'type' is used to filter the returned pool objects, so patches
1/50 to 14/50 should be skipped, though there is several patches
in the range not related with storage pool specificly.

Filtering is done inside the storage driver, so I don't see why
this needs to be exposed in the public API.

Patch 12/50 will explain it: if the server side is old enough without
the new API listAllStoragePools, and virsh is new enough to have the
new introduced option "--type". I.e. new virsh talks to old libvirt,
It will need to get the pool type to filter the results in virsh layer.

set-NACK for the idea, server can't have the poolGetInfoFlags if it
doesn't support listAllStoragePools. But any other idea if want to
have the "--cap" support?
