Floppy drive needs the floppy interface type

Description of problem:

I'm trying to load the virtio storage drivers from a floppy image by pressing F6 during Windows setup. Windows tells me that no floppy drives can be found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libvirt-0.8.2-3.fc14

How reproducible:

Define a floppy drive as:

<disk type='file' device='floppy'>
    <source file='/data/windows/viostor-31-03-2010-floppy.img' />
    <target dev='fda' />
</disk>

and boot from the Windows CD.

The floppy part in the generated qemu cmdline:
-drive file=/data/windows/viostor-31-03-2010-floppy.img,if=none,id=drive-fdc0-0-0,format=raw -global isa-fdc.driveA=drive-fdc0-0-0

Changing if=none to if=floppy works, I've attached a rather crude patch which does just that.

Sorry for the lack of response, but given the age of this bug, closing as WONTFIX.

Ruben (or anyone), if you can still reproduce with a more recent Fedora,
please reopen this report and we can go from there.
