I mean that it would be nice to have a function that parses all
ignorelist options (Device/IgnoreSelected/whatever new thing
for them is invented). It could be used in config callback like this:

static ignorelist_t *device_list;

static int plugin_config (const char *key, const char *value)
	int ret;

	ret = parse_ignorelist_options(&device_list, key, value);
	if (ret != -1)
		return ret;

	/* parse other options */
	return -1;

That would eliminate some code duplication in plugins that monitor
multiple devices.

Best regards,
Michał Mirosław
