Add virtio capabilities
Last modified: 2010-03-16 13:11:47 EDT
Description of problem:
To use the new virtio capabilites available in kvm 60, special command line
paramaters need to be passed to kvm. There should be a way to specify that a
device should use virtio in the libvirt xml.
I propose adding a "model" attribute to the interface element in the XML to be
able to specify the type of NIC to emulate, e.g. 'virtio'.
For the disk virtio I propose adding an 'interface' attribute to target element
(inside the disk element). This interface could then be set to 'virtio', 'ide',
I have a patch against 0.4.0 that does this for block devices (rjones has done
the network bit). Give me a few days to rework it against 0.4.1.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Also in 0.4.3 AFAIK
Yes, this is most definitely fixed upstream, so closing this bug.
