[libvirt] [PATCH 9/8] save: support direct autodump in qemu.conf



When auto-dumping a domain on crash events, let the user configure
whether to have the VIR_DUMP_DIRECT flag effects.

* src/qemu/qemu.conf (auto_dump_direct): Document new variable.
* src/qemu/libvirtd_qemu.aug (vnc_entry): Let augeas parse it.
* src/qemu/qemu_conf.h (qemud_driver): Store new preference.
* src/qemu/qemu_conf.c (qemudLoadDriverConfig): Parse it.
* src/qemu/qemu_driver.c (processWatchdogEvent): Honor it.

 # auto_dump_path = "/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/dump"

+# When a domain is configured to be auto-dumped, enabling this flag
+# has the same effect as using the VIR_DUMP_DIRECT flag with the
+# virDomainCoreDump API.  That is, the system uses O_DIRECT if possible,
+# which puts less pressure on the file system cache but may cause
+# slower operation.

 # If provided by the host and a hugetlbfs mount point is configured,

 # unspecified here, determination of a host mount point in /proc/mounts
