+Further details to the driver can be passed using I<subdriver>. For Xen
+I<subdriver> can be I<aio>, while for QEMU subdriver should match the format
+of the disk source, such as I<raw> or I<qcow2>.  Hypervisor default will be
+used if I<subdriver> is not specified.  However, the default may not be

+disk formats.  I<type> can indicate I<lun>, I<cdrom> or I<floppy> as
