[libvirt] [PATCH] additional parameter needed for dnsmasq

RHBZ: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=849787

As currently configured, dnsmasq for a virtual network will pass some queries upstream toward the Internet. This includes AAAA and MX queries as well a A queries when dnsmasq cannot answer for that name. This is occurring whether a domain name is specified or not. The problem is that dnsmasq will, by default, forward all queries unless "local=" is specified. I cannot envision a situation where such queries should be forwarded.

See the bugzilla report for more info. While I did a lot of testing to figure out the problem and what needed to be done to fix it, I am unable to actually rebuild the libvirt rpm in my environment.

The solution is the following patch:
