[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 2/5] libxl: make GC_FREE reachable in libxl_get_scheduler()

Coverity CID 1343309

Make GC_FREE reachable in all cases in libxl_get_scheduler() by
eliminating the error-path return and instead storing the error code in
the returned variable.

To make this semantically consistent, change the return type of
libxl_get_scheduler() from libxl_scheduler to int, and make a note of
the interpretation of the return value in libxl.h.  N.B. This change
breaks neither the API nor the ABI of libxl.

Signed-off-by: Chester Lin <czylin@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Changed return type of libxl_get_scheduler in order to return both negative
error constants and positive scheduler values.
