Description Dave Allan 2010-06-16 14:57:59 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #596928 +++

The udev node device backend doesn't list wireless interfaces. This causes an issue with virt-manager users if trying to create interfaces via the 'interface' APIs: if they remove their wireless sysconfig file, the card needs to be listed by the node device APIs so we can offer to readd the config.

Fixed upstream here:
