Added to git for F16 and F17, it will make the next package builds.
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2012-01-30 05:40:28 EST
The kvm.modules file is still doing a pointless  'modprobe virtio-net' which is a guest only module. 

Also bugs against stable releases shouldn't be closed when the fix is in GIT, they should be closed by Bohdi when the update is pushd to the repos.
Comment 3 Justin M. Forbes 2012-01-31 15:32:46 EST
Bodhi won't close it because I didn't add this bug number to the update, but it is in updates-testing if you want to give it karma.
