Description Qunfang Zhang 2013-02-03 22:20:36 EST
Description of problem:
In the current rhel7 qemu-kvm, there's no "__com.redhat_drive_add"/"drive_add" and "__com.redhat_drive_del"/"drive_del" qmp commands so can not do hot plug and unplug disk operations.

Luiz mentioned in bz 889051 that the "__com.redhat_*" commands are rhel6.4 specified. And if finally there's no "__com.redhat_*" commands in rhel7.0, we need to add "drive_add"/"drive_del" commands to qmp. Otherwise (if rhel7.0 has "__com.redhat_*" commands we also need to have it for qmp as well.
Create this bug to track this issue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot guest with qmp.

2. Connect to qmp server and query the qmp commands.
{"return": {}}


Actual results:
There's no "__com.redhat_drive_add"/"drive_add" and "__com.redhat_drive_del"/"drive_del" qmp commands so can not do disk hot plug/unplug operations.

Expected results:
Need to include commands to do disk hot plug and unplug.

Qunfang, we can use bug 889051 for this, there's no need to create a new one.
