Re: [libvirt] [PATCHv2 03/15] util: new function for scaling numbers

Scaling an integer based on a suffix is something we plan on reusing

elsewhere.  Make it easy to reuse, as well as adding in support for
powers of 1000.

* src/util/util.c (virScaleInteger): Implement it.
* src/libvirt_private.syms (util.h): Export it.

v2: new, but borrows ideas from memory v1 3/3

I'd write a little bit more on how the base selection works depending on the argument. Something like:

For power-of-two scaling use the binary prefixes (i.e. KiB, MiB), for
power of ten scaling use the SI prefixes (i.e. KB, Mb, ...).

+virScaleInteger(unsigned long long *value, const char *suffix,
+                unsigned long long scale, unsigned long long limit)

Looks good. ACK
