Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v2] qemu: Do not reattach PCI device used by other domain when shutdown

After thinking a while, even we set the used_by during domains reloading,

for these attrs as generally they are initialized when do preparation,
however the preparations are already passed, and the devices are using
by the running domains. And thus the device won't be bound to the
original driver (if it had) correctly, or mistakenly bound to some driver
but it didn't have one.

Perhaps we need some new XMLs introduced for hostdevs.

You're right - the only sane way to survive libvirtd restarts is to track more information in the domain xml (it can be internal xml, and doesn't have to be dumped to the user; compare how we track <actual> as an internal-only detail on how networks were actually allocated). Sounds like we've got more work to do in this area.
