In the libvirt case, it seems libvirt is failing to add media=cdrom to
the commandline, so in this case qemu is defaulting to media=disk and
my proposed fix has no effect. Diving into libvirt now to see why no
media=disk is getting added...

Common test case has this xml (generated by virt-install):

    <disk type='block' device='cdrom'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <target dev='hdc' bus='ide'/>
      <readonly/>
      <alias name='ide0-1-0'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='1' target='0' unit='0'/>
    </disk>
