Interesting approach. The only thing I am worried about is that it might
trick users into thinking we will implement something similar for
editing XML files for domains. That is, if they edit
/etc/libvirt/qemu/myFavouriteDomain.xml, libvirt will monitor the
changes and re-read the file if needed.

The documentation is missing. There is docs/hooks.html.in file which
covers this topic.

Moreover, 'make all syntax-check check' is your friend ;-)
I'm not gonna report problems found by syntax-check - now that you know
we have such feature, you can fix those issues yourself.

man page suggests using slightly larger buffer.

@fd is blocking. We don't want to read from a blocking FD in our event
loop (as it might block the whole event loop).

We have a wrapper for that - saferead(). Also, it would be nice if an
error is reported on failed read. Just imagine you're given the daemon
logs with bug description 'libvirt hooks do not work with inotify'.

Wait, what? This discards partially read event. Moreover, in the next
iteration we start reading from wrong offset in the inotify_event struct
and thus poison the well. I think we need to come up with better
mechanism for reading events. Also - should we allocate receiving buffer
for events dynamically on demand?

This does not feel right. e->name is type of ' char[]'.

Well, this just sets some internal variable. It doesn't reload the list
of hooks or something. Moreover, these hooks are meant to be run at the
daemon startup. Therefore I think you should stick to what I suggest in
the other e-mail.
