Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, using the libvirt-tck utility to find the parent device of a node device with no parent incorrectly returned a "libvirt error code: 0" error message. Now, it is valid for the virNodeDeviceGetParent() function to return NULL if the parent device is nonexistent, and the error message is no longer displayed.

verify with perl-Sys-Virt-1.1.1-2.el7.x86_64

my @nodelist = $conn->list_all_node_devices();
  foreach my $dev (@nodelist){
  my $parent = $dev->get_parent();
  diag $parent;

output msg:
# parent ===== 
# parent ===== computer
# parent ===== computer
# parent ===== computer

no libvirt error occured. move to verified.
