Description Soren Hansen 2008-01-31 10:30:17 EST
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',
'scsi', etc..

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.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 00:56:57 EDT
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.
