Description Dan Kenigsberg 2010-07-15 16:10:12 EDT
1. getCapabilities - VDSM should report 2 additional properties:
         1. per nic:  SRIOV = VF/PF/unvirtualized
         2. per network: bridged/sriov

2. addNetwork - The interface today includes: bridge,vlan,bond,nics,options
      For 2.3 version, passing the option SRIOV=true/false tell if vdsm creates a bridge-based of sriov-based network.

3. getVdsStats - report how many VFs are available for each sriov-based network

4. create - no change in API. Implementation makes sure that only virtio interfaces are connected to sriov-based network. If no VF is available, connect the newly created VM through a bridge.
