Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: Add quotes to kernel command line of direct kernel boot

Thanks Eric! After reading the code of virCommandRun and virExecWithHook, I know there is no problem of passing arguments.

When passing kernel command line arguments, it is possible to have

If the contents in <cmdline> are passed as-is to qemu, then qemu will see
   qemu ... -append console=ttyS0 ks=http://example.com/f8-i386/os/ ...
That's what shows in the guest log, because we don't (yet) properly
quote arguments in the log.  But if you look at what we actually pass to
the exec() family,...

          if (def->os.cmdline)
-            virCommandAddArgList(cmd, "-append", def->os.cmdline, NULL);
...this code properly passes def->os.cmdline as a single exec()
argument.  Remember, virCommand is NOT subject to further shell
interpretation.  You are getting confused by trying to treat the log
output as though libvirt were invoking /bin/sh to start the command,
instead of calling exec() directly.

If anything, the real bug to fix would be virCommandToString to have a
mode that lists the output with shell quoting as needed, and to use that
mode when outputting log file information.

Thanks and best regards!
