Added s390-virtio machine type to the XML schema for domains in order

Sorry cannot ACK this one until you update the documentation as well.


Hi Michal,

actually I was pondering about a doc update when preparing the patches.
I only wasn't clear where to put it. The only place where possible
arch/machine values are mentioned seems to be in formatcaps.html.in.
Would you expect me to add a sample output of the capabilities XML for
s390 with some comments in there, or did you have something else in mind?


Actually, now I am going through docs I don't see a proper place
neither. Moreover, in formatdomain.html.in we state: "The Capabilities
XML provides details on allowed values for these" [these = @machine and
@type] So as long as we report them in capabilities XML I guess we don't
really need an doc extension.

However, I think this [1] should be virtio-s390 instead of s390-virtio
since we use the former among the code.

What do you think?


the naming is awkward and I stumble over it from time to time too. Unfortunately this is the terminology qemu uses.

In a nutshell:
s390-virtio = machine type, meaning s390 machine with virtio bus
virtio-s390 = bus type, meaning s390-specific virtio bus

The current virtio bus on s390 is a fully virtual bus not related to a real hardware bus like the PCI bus on the other architectures. So, while the names looks strange, they are technically correct.
