The second parameter of dump_error is unused, but one purpose of
using this function is to report the error info.

Good catch, but error_report() will report the error only to the user. This
is QMP code, so we have to use the Error API.

I think that the best way to solve this is to make dump_error() fill an
Error object (eg. by calling error_setg()) and then returning it after
the call to dump_cleanup(). Of course that you will have to change _all_
code paths calling dump_error() to propagate the error up.

For more information on this, please read docs/writing-qmp-commands.txt.
You can also take a look at simple commands doing error propagation, like
qmp_cont() or qmp_block_passwd().



Thanks for your review.

Actually, for all paths that call dump_error, at last they will come into a
common path which will call error_setg().

The call process as below:
(1)     -->create_kdump_vmcore
        -->error_set(errp, QERR_IO_ERROR)(if create_kdump_vmcore failed)
(2)     -->create_vmcore
        -->error_set(errp, QERR_IO_ERROR)(if create_kdump_vmcore failed)

And a short *IO ERROR* info will be returned to the caller of 

So, is it OK in dump_error just report the detailed error info to users
(actually, it will be stored in qemu log)? Or should these error info
also returned to the caller?

What's your suggestion? Thanks.:)
