Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 3/6] virsh: make tree listing more flexible

Requiring the user to pass in parallel arrays of names and parents

to use callbacks, we isolate the layout to be independent of the
printing, and a future patch can exploit that to improve layout.

* tools/virsh.c (vshTreePrintInternal): Use callbacks rather than
requiring a char** array.
(vshTreeArrayLookup): New helper function.
(vshTreePrint, cmdNodeListDevices, cmdSnapshotList): Update callers.

This is used just for listing node devices IIUC. Wouln't it be better to explicitly name the helper and struct that it's meant for node devices? vshNodeDeviceTree ... ?

   * "nodedev-list" command

ACK. The name doesn't matter that much, making the tree printer more universal does.
