[FEAT]: QEMU: Add more information to SMBIOS
Last modified: 2013-07-03 21:19:06 EDT
Description of problem:
http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/?view=rev&root=qemu&revision=7163 implemented more SMBIOS information:
I wonder how much of this we need:
1. For special applications that look at those fields(P2V comes to mind - some HP apps need it - we know that already)
2. For our own use (the tools within the guest can make use of this information, for example, obtain underlying KVM version
3. I'm pretty sure this is NOT needed for SVVP - at least not with WLK 1.2 - but may be with future versions - 1.4.
I think we should see that we can live without it for RHEV-1.0, and then postpone it with no regrets to future releases.
Lastly, this is on KVM for merge purposes, but once it's in the code, BZs should be opened for VDSM and RHEV-M to support it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
