Description Jeremy Katz 2008-03-02 15:46:08 EST
The new virtio (http://kvm.qumranet.com/kvmwiki/Virtio) virtual devices which
are available to provide PV drivers to KVM and other virt technologies don't
seem to be showing up in hal.  It looks like we just need to add support for the
"virtio" bus

Support for virtio devices

This seems to do the trick to add support for finding the devices.   The disk
still isn't found, but that looks like it's because we're missing the block
symlink in the device directory ==> kernel problem.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-02 17:04:58 EST
And kernel patch for virtio disks to show up properly sent upstream.
