[libvirt] [PATCH v2 0/5] Virtual interface link state modification



This patchset adds the ability for libvirt users to control interface
link state of the virtual network devices provided by hypervisors.

Modification of the link state is accomplished by adding a new XML
element <link state"up"> or "down" to the domain XML. The corresponding
network interface is thereafter initialised with the desired state.

Live modification of the link state is achieved by calling
virDomainUpdateDeviceFlags containing a modified interface configuration.
Yet, users may modify only link state of an interface.

This feature allows propagation of network topology changes to guests,
testing scenarios in complex virtual networks, etc ...

Future upgrade:
- add support for VirtualBox

Modifications to v1:
- use virUpdateDeviceFlags instead of dedicated API
- incorporate helpful comments by Eric Blake
