Yes, this will give you an event

   VIR_DOMAIN_EVENT_STARTED 

with a detail field containing one of the following

    VIR_DOMAIN_EVENT_STARTED_BOOTED = 0,   /* Normal startup from boot */
    VIR_DOMAIN_EVENT_STARTED_MIGRATED = 1, /* Incoming migration from another host */
    VIR_DOMAIN_EVENT_STARTED_RESTORED = 2, /* Restored from a state file */


NB, we do not require that all drivers support the detail field. At this
time, only KVM/QEMU driver will fill in the detail field. Others (Xen, etc)
will always set VIR_DOMAIN_EVENT_STARTED_BOOTED

Daniel
