Thanks.  I'm afraid this is still tripping my repetition detector.
See below.

The same comment applies as before about libxl__add_disks and the two

But, this is another copy of libxl__add_disks.  Perhaps you want a
macro to generate these functions ?

In general this patch seems to contain an awful lot of very similar
code to the previous one.  Eg domcreate_nic_connected is practically
identical to domcreate_disk_connected.  And domcreate_attach_nick is
practically identical to domcreate_attach_disk.

Another option would be to make the types of libxl__device_FOO_add
compatible (by replacing the actual config parameter with const void*)
and then pass them as function pointers.

Or you could even have a table
   { offsetof(disks, libxl_domain_config), sizeof(libxl_device_disk),
     libxl__device_disk_add },
   { offsetof(vifs, libxl_domain_config), sizeof(libxl_device_vif),
     libxl__device_nic_add },
which your domain creation logic could iterate over.  That way you
would do away with domcreate_FOO_connected and you'd end up with

   static void domcreate_device_connected(libxl__egc *egc,
                                     libxl__ao_device *aodev)
       tableentry = devicekindstable[dcs->currentdevicekind];

       rc = libxl__ao_device_check_last(gc, aodev, dcs->devices,
       if (rc > 0) return;
       if (rc) {
           LOGE(ERROR, "error connecting devices");
           goto error_out;


       if (!devicekindstable[dcs->currentdevicekind].add_function) {
           domcreate_complete(egc, dcs, rc);
       } else {
           domcreate_attach_devices(egc, dcs);

or something like it.

Or something.  Anyway, can you try to find a way to avoid me having to
review lots of nearly-identical code ?
