Just in case, here is a version taking care of that:

Here is a RFC patch, which demonstrates how libvirt could communicate
with lldpad via the lldptool for the 802.1Qbg case. Please note, that
there is currently no public available version of lldptool which accepts
this command line. This is also work in progress.
