[libvirt] [PATCH 14/14] Change the default QEMU lock manager to 'lockd'



From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange redhat com>

The current default QEMU lock manager is the 'nop' lock manager,
which obviously does not perform any locking. The new virtlockd
daemon is able to work out of the box with zero configuration
in single-host only mode. Enable this as the default lock manager
for all QEMU guests

* src/qemu/qemu.conf: Update docs for lock_driver parameter
* src/qemu/qemu_conf.c: Change default lock manager to 'lockd'
