[Libguestfs] [PATCH v2v] Add --root (root choice) option.



I tested this for the --root=ask, --root=single cases, and the
others look obvious from code inspection.

Rich.

Subject: [PATCH 3/3] Add --root (root choice) option.

This option allows the root filesystem to be chosen more
intelligently for operating systems that are (correctly or
otherwise) identified as multi-boot.

This changes the default behaviour so that instead of just
printing an error and dying, which all users hated, it now
defaults to asking the user which root filesystem they want
to use.  You can get the old behaviour by specifying
--root=single.  There are various other behaviours available
too.

+Choose the root filesystem to be converted.
+
+In the case where the virtual machine is dual-boot or multi-boot, or
+where the VM has other filesystems that look like operating systems,
+this option can be used to select the root filesystem (a.k.a. "C:
+drive" or "/") of the operating system that is to be converted.  The
+Windows Recovery Console, certain attached DVD drives, and bugs in
+libguestfs inspection heuristics, can make a guest look like a
+multi-boot operating system.
+
+The default in virt-v2v E<le> 0.7.1 was I<--root=single>, which
+causes virt-v2v to die if a multi-boot operating system is found.
+
+Since virt-v2v E<ge> 0.7.2 the default is now I<--root=ask>: If the VM
+is found to be multi-boot, then virt-v2v will stop and list the
+possible root filesystems and ask the user which to use.  This
+requires that virt-v2v is run interactively.
+
+I<--root=first> means to choose the first root device in the case of a
+multi-boot operating system.  Since this is a heuristic, it may
+sometimes choose the wrong one.
+
+You can also name a specific root device, eg. I<--root=/dev/sda2>
+would mean to use the second partition on the first hard drive.  If
+the named root device does not exist or was not detected as a root
+device, then virt-v2v will fail.
