  I have 2 basic questions:

    - how can we be sure that if we apply this the XML interface won't
      need to change due to kernel interfaces, maybe Chris can confirm
      that the kernel is now stable enough that this should not affect
      the XML anymore
    - can I get some signoff from Cisco that there is agreement on this
      format and that will be sufficient for their need

If I get the 2 ACK then I will review and push, assuming the low level
activation via netlink can be finalized in another patch. But if there
is still too many doubts about the low level, then I prefer to wait a
bit since by definition the patch is not functional as-is but rather
an attempt at stabilizing the libvirt API level,

  thanks !
