Hmm.
virsh attach-disk --type cdrom --mode readonly myguest "" hdc
might look a bit nicer as:
virsh attach-disk --type cdrom --mode readonly myguest --target hdc
except that we marked --source as a required argument, so we have to provide something even when there is no real source. So I agree that we need your patch at a bare minimum to support this documented command line for adding a cdrom drive without a disk.
Is there any other method of removing media from cdrom? I try with:
detach-disk myguest hdc

This will detach the CD drive from guest, for just removing the media,
"update-device $domain xml" with the source path removed in the xml
will work.

We planned to add some new virsh commands such as "insert-media",
"eject-media" before to do the work, as "update-device" is not quite
visiable, and question like this are frequent in upstream, but unfortunately,
it's not implemented yet.

It told me: 'unsupported configuration: device type 'disk' cannot be detached'

Is this the exact error you saw, it's weried if a device of type disk can't be
detached. The error expected should be something like:

"unsupported configuration: device type of 'cdrom' cannot be detached"
