Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v1 1/2] Backcompt for console devices in virDomainDeviceInfoIterate

Hi Daniel and Eric,

Would you please help review this patch?
This is one bug fix for pSeries.
x86 doesn't have such a problem, because serial devices has no bus address on x86.
I think this won't break x86.

This situation is not considered. It still handles the first <console>
element as another devices, which means that for console[0] with
serial targetType, it calls callback function another time.
It will cause the problem of address conflicts when assigning
spapr-vio address for serial device on pSeries guest.

The following describes the problem:

For pSeries guest, the serial configuration in the xml file
is as the following:
          <serial type='pty'>
                <target port='0'/>
                <address type='spapr-vio'/>

There is no console configuration in this file. The dumped xml file
is as the following:
    <serial type='pty'>
       <source path='/dev/pts/5'/>
       <target port='0'/>
       <alias name='serial0'/>
       <address type='spapr-vio' reg='0x30000000'/>
     <console type='pty' tty='/dev/pts/5'>
       <source path='/dev/pts/5'/>
       <target type='serial' port='0'/>
       <alias name='serial0'/>
       <address type='spapr-vio' reg='0x30000000'/>

It shows that the <console> device is the alias of serial device.
So its address is the same as the serial device. When dectecting
the conflicts in the qemuAssignSpaprVIOAddress the first console
and the serial device conflicts because virDomainDeviceInfoIterate()
still handle these are two different devices, and in the qemuAssignSpaprVIOAddress(),
it will compare these two devices' addressed. If they have same address,
it will report address error. Actually, they should have the same address,
and the error shouldn't be reported.

So this patch is to handle the first console which targetType is serial
as the alias of serial device to avoid address conflicts error reported.
