Description Markus Armbruster 2007-03-22 09:54:16 EDT
Description of problem:
The current way the hotplug scripts report errors is sub-optimal, rarely
giving the user enough information to diagnose the problem. This is 
particularly true of the networking scripts whose typical failure mode
is very obsecure. eg, if I configure a guest to use bridge7 which does
not exist, I will be told:

  # xm create demo
  ....60 seconds passes...
  Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

How reproducible:

Additional info:
A fix is upstream (see URL field) and in FC-6.
