booting a guest and installing the tools using qxl display, when booting the guest again later using VNC you will be requested to install driver for PV once more (and it will not happen automatically)

I think there's a bug about this for Izik, about PCI devices persistency in their 'slots'

Actual time not defined. Setting to 0.0
can it be closed?
The task of ensuring consistent PCI slots is not really something to be solved at the KVM level, it merely exposes the mechanism todo so (the new -device arg allows PCI addr to be set). libvirt is intending to allow static PCI slots to be specified when configuring guests, so if this bug is still needed, it should likely be switched over to the libvirt component
Two upstream patchsets working towards this
Updated combined series with this support
libvirt-0.7.6-0.pre20100121.el6 has been built in RHEL-6-candidate
and includes the new QEmu device setting code,
Verified PASSED with libvirt-0.8.1-10.el6. libvirt could stable guest ABI .
1. Upgrade qemu-kvm on host
2. remove device from guest
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
