'phy' is a Xen driver name. virsh was mistakenly setting that if using
virsh attach-disk. Previously QEMU was ignoring this field entirely
so we didn't notice the mistake in virsh, but now it validates it to
be 'qemu'  (further options may arise if disk back moves into the
kernel like vhost_net did).
