Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-11-21 11:29:48 EST
Description of problem:

The guest below is a Xen->KVM hand-migrated guest which uses whole
disks for filesystems (ie. a filesystem is directly on a block device).

The functions in (at least) virt-inspector to canonical disk names
cannot cope with this, so they leave the paths as /dev/vda etc instead
of rewriting as /dev/sda.

# virt-inspector2 GuestName
      <mountpoint dev="/dev/vda">/</mountpoint>
      <mountpoint dev="/dev/vdb">/lib/modules</mountpoint>
      <filesystem dev="/dev/vda">

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.6.2 (RHEL 6.1 candidate)

How reproducible:

Always for guests which use whole disks as filesystems.
