Upgrading to using virtio_blk is very complicated.  You have to
rebuild initrd, and there's a difficult circular dependency to be
resolved when doing this because you need to be using virtio_blk in
order for mkinitrd to believe that you need it, although possibly
mkinitrd supports some command line argument to override this.  I
actually gave up at this point.

For newly installed guests, recent anaconda just works everything out
for you and puts the correct drivers into initrd.
