Created attachment 317710 [details]

Trying to install a KVM guest with RHEL5.3 virt-install, I noticed
that --extra-args is broken. Basically, we ignore the option when
using --hvm.

This prevents e.g. doing kickstart installs of KVM with virt-install
which would make doing automated QA and the like difficult.
