This will check only the start value of a range. When you use a range
that starts with a valid number "1-1000000000000" for example, then the
loop that is setting bits from the range will triger the crash too.

IMO the correct fix here is to get rid of the weird construction:

if (!virBitmapIsSet(*bitmap, i)) {
    ignore_value(virBitmapSetBit(*bitmap, i));


if (virBitmapSetBit(*bitmap, i) < 0)
    goto error;

and at the end count the enabled bits as
ret = virBitmapCountBits(*bitmap);

instead of the code that is present.

I'll post an updated version of this patch containing the suggested changes.
