Subject: [PATCH 2/3] libxl: add domain config parameter to force start of qemu
Date: Thu, 10 Mar 2016 16:00:50 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1457622051-30189-3-git-send-email-jgross@suse.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1457622051-30189-1-git-send-email-jgross@suse.com>

Today the device model (qemu) is started for a pv domain only in case
a device requiring qemu is specified in the domain configuration
(qdisk, vfb, channel). If there is no such device the device model
isn't started and hence it is possible to add such a device to the
domain later.

Add a domain configuration parameter to specify the device model is
to be started in any case. This will enable adding devices with a
qemu based backend later.

While the optimal solution would be to start the device model
automatically when needed this would require some major rework of
libxl at multiple places.

+If true, start the device model for paravirtualized domains even if this isn't
