[Xen-devel] question about SIGSEGV in datacopier_readable in libxl_aoutil.c

Hi, List,

I'm trying to add migration APIs to libvirt libxl driver. In testing HVM migration, on source side, when executing libxl_domain_suspend, often meet SIGSEGV in libxl_aoutil.c: datacopier_readable, the malloc() function place:
ÂÂÂÂÂ if (!buf || buf->used >= sizeof(buf->buf)) {
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ buf = malloc(sizeof(*buf));
I doubt the heap is corrupted someway but couldn't confirm the root cause. And I tried valgrind to find some clue, following is the info right before the SIGSEGV.
#valgrind --leak-check=full /usr/sbin/libvirtd -l -d

I couldn't find a clear problem in the code, but after trying to change the code a little, it turned to be working.
Following is the change.

Could anybody familiar with this part of code take a look at it?
