Description Cole Robinson 2014-01-31 18:54:46 UTC
virt-manager depends on parsing the local cpu_map.xml file that libvirt ships to get a list of CPU model names. This file is meant to be private to libvirt so we shouldn't be doing that.

There's an API now called virConnectGetCPUModelNames which we should be using to get this info, on new enough libvirt.

    virtinst: use libvirt getCPUModelNames when available
    Read the list of CPU models trough getCPUModelNames instead of
    accessing directly the file cpu_map.xml.
