[fedora-virt] Some new features of virt-inspector



I've added a few extra features to virt-inspector (in
libguestfs >= 1.0.42).

First up is a new 'query mode', documented in the manpage:

  http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs/virt-inspector.1.html#query_mode

Just run:

  virt-inspector --query [some virtual machine]

and it'll print out some useful facts about the virtual machine such
as whether it's fully virtualized or needs a Xen hypervisor, and
whether it has various paravirt drivers installed.

Secondly (not covered in the manpage), virt-inspector will try to
discover whether a VM contains the right initrd drivers and module
configuration to boot under various hypervisors.  So for example it
can tell you whether a guest has the virtio drivers available at boot
time to boot from a virtio disk.

As usual, to find out more about virt-inspector, see the manual page
or the libguestfs home page:

  http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs/virt-inspector.1.html
  http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs/

libguestfs and virt-inspector are available in Fedora 11 updates-
testing, or Rawhide, or as RPMs from Koji here:
