Our documentation to the virStreamRecvAll, virStreamSendAll,
virStreamSparseRecvAll, and virStreamSparseSendAll functions indicates
that if these functions fail, then virStreamAbort is called....

(essentially what I wrote in the previous review).

Also of note from the previous review:

My comment:

Your response:
    Ah, I haven't realized that! Sure. this definitely needs to be fixed
    too. In fact, it belongs to this patch IMO - since it's fixing the very
    same issue.

...

So, IOW: Please update the virStreamRecv example to add that
virStreamAbort if (got < 0)...
