Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/6] buf: support peeking at string contents

Right now, the only way to get at the contents of a virBuffer is
to destroy it.  But there are cases in my upcoming patches where
peeking at the contents makes life easier.  I suppose this does
open up the potential for bad code to dereference a stale pointer,
by disregarding the docs that the return value is invalid on the
next virBuf operation, but such is life.

* src/util/buf.h (virBufferCurrentContent): New declaration.
* src/util/buf.c (virBufferCurrentContent): Implement it.
* src/libvirt_private.syms (buf.h): Export it.
* tests/virbuftest.c (testBufAutoIndent): Test it.

ACK. Might be useful sometimes. I looked for something like this once.
