[root@rhel6 ~]# sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
[root@rhel6 ~]# tuned-adm profile default
Stopping tuned:                                            [  OK  ]
Switching to profile 'default'
Applying ktune sysctl settings:
/etc/ktune.d/tunedadm.conf:                                [  OK  ]
Applying sysctl settings from /etc/sysctl.conf
Starting tuned:                                            [  OK  ]
[root@rhel6 ~]# sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0

The same thing happens if, for example, your machine boots with NetworkManager disabled, and you later enable NetworkManager. If libvirtd started at boot time, it would have turned ip_forwarding on, but enabling NetworkManager turns it off.

Should libvirt be making this change permanent as a routine part of starting up libvirtd? Or should we instead not touch it at all, and tell the user that they need to change their configuration outside the context of libvirt?
