Nothing to cleanup here. I think we should just return -1 on failure paths and 0
on success.

I accessed a machine to test this series and have found a few problems.

1. When attaching an SR-IOV vf from a pool, the attach appears successful.
   I see that xen's pciback driver is bound to the device in the host. I
   didn't see the device in the guest (could be a guest problem), nor in
   dumpxml or /var/run/libvirt/libxl/<dom-name>.xml. Not surprisingly,
   this causes problems with device-detach

   # virsh detach-device dom sriov-pool-vif.xml
   error: Failed to detach device from sriov-pool-vif.xml
   error: operation failed: no device matching mac address 00:16:3e:7a:35:df found

2. After starting a domain containing an interface from sr-iov vf pool, the
   interface xml is changed from type='network' to type='hostdev'. E.g.
   before creating domain

    <interface type='network'>
      <source network='passthrough'/>
      <mac address='00:16:3e:7a:35:df'/>
    </interface>

   after creating domain

    <interface type='hostdev' managed='yes'>
      <mac address='00:16:3e:7a:35:df'/>
      <driver name='xen'/>
      <source>
        <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x0a' slot='0x11' function='0x1'/>
      </source>
    </interface>

   Maybe this is intended behavior, but it seems odd.

3. I started a domain containing an interface from sr-iov vf pool. Looks
   good. I then tried 'virsh detach-device ...', which never returned
   until keepalive timeout. The device was removed from the guest, but
   libvirtd got hung up in the process. Oddly, I wasn't able to interrupt
   libvirtd with gdb to see what its threads were doing.

Do you have access to an appropriate machine to test these scenarios, to see if
the issues are reproducible or just a problem with my configuration?

Regards,
Jim
