That's fine.

<facepalm> I meant just the flag name itself - the typedef name is just
that and used only once, so no big deal.

Yeah I recall the [0] console entry being quite special with the details
being found in various places in the code.

In any case, if @all == false, then true is only returned if other
conditions are met too such as using/checking the [0]th entry of the
consoles list. When @all == true, then false is returned and that's the
"more normal" case as prior to this patch @all was true for all except
when virDomainDeviceInfoIterate calls virDomainDeviceInfoIterateInternal

Sure things are fine
