Cloning bug from RHEL5 -> RHEL6
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #593914 +++
We need the ability for a user to specify the cache mechanism used by each virtual disk device.
The user should be able to select between "no cache", "writethrough" and "writeback' where no-cache should be the default.
Created attachment 415424 [details]
Allow changing cache setting in VM Details -> Disk section
Verified with virt-manager-0.8.4-4.el6.noarch, the following options can be selected. Moving to VERIFIED.
Cache mode: default | none | writeback | writethrough
