[libvirt] [PATCH] virsh: Option for overriding disk type in attach-disk



Unless --driver tap|file option was given to attach-disk, virsh would
generate <disk type='block'> XML which might be fine for Xen but not for
other hypervisors. This patch introduces a new option --sourcetype which
can be used to explicitly set the type of disk source. The option
accepts either "file" or "block" types.
