Re: [Libvir] [PATCH] add bootloader_args to libvirt xml to support bootloaders (like pypxeboot for example) that require arguments

This patch extends libvirt's XML to include a paramater Xen already supports in sexpr, "bootloader_args." The bootloader_args parameter lets you pass arguments -- "mac=aa:12:34:56:78:90" for example -- to a bootloader program that xend invokes when it starts a guest. One such program, pypxeboot, uses the mac= argument to communicate with a dhcp server and retrieve the pxeboot kernel and initrd for a paravirt guest.

The patch includes new tests for the bootloader_args XML and sexpr, which pass.

Note that for the head of current libvirt, the virsh tests do not pass and virsh will not connect to the xen hypervisor. I don't know if this is my own build environment or some other issue. However the failure is the same with or without this patch, so I am submitting it anyway.

Please let me know what you think...

Looks good to me.

Did you find out what was causing the build problems (ie. beyond just NFS)?
