[libvirt] [PATCH 0/7] QEMU network/bridge backed NIC hotplug



Hey,
        So, here are the patches needed to complete the QEMU NIC hotplug
work by supporting network and bridge backed interfaces.

        We support this by passing a tap file descriptor to qemu over
the monitor socket using SCM_RIGHTS.

        The monitor commands required for this (getfd and closefd) are
queued up in Anthony's queue and should be in qemu-0.11-rc1 which is due
to be released very soon:

  http://repo.or.cz/w/qemu/aliguori-queue.git?a=commitdiff;h=f4069061e3

        Note: I just remembered I'm not handling missing support for
these commands very well. I'll make it handle an 'unknown command' reply
gracefully by failing the attach tommorrow.

Cheers,
Mark.
