NACK.  VSH_OFLAG_REQ means required, absence of that flag (ie. using 0
for the flag) means optional.  This patch would break the command by
requiring a --cellno argument, even with --all.

This is the current 'virsh help freecell' output, without your patch:

$ virsh help freecell
    freecell - NUMA free memory

    freecell [--cellno <number>] [--all]

    display available free memory for the NUMA cell.

    --cellno <number>  NUMA cell number
    --all            show free memory for all NUMA cells

It shows that both --cellno and --all are optional; however, what it
does not show (and cannot show, without a lot more work throughout
virsh), is the notion of mutual exclusion (that is, there is no trivial
way to make virsh help output the {} operators to show the alternation
that the virsh.pod has by hand).
