The virsh client will hang up for a fair long time. The patch will add
keepalive into virsh to determine the status of network connection with
remote libvirtd, aboring migration job after 30 seconds later since
This turns on keepalive only for the connection to destination daemon during
migrations. I think we want to use keepalive for every connection open by
virsh, i.e., even for the main one. And even more importantly, we don't want
to hardcode keepalive parameters, users should be able to set them using virsh
command line options.


I consider the keepalive parameters as one of the options to migrate command.
      There are two reasons I choose hardcode value.
      one is that the newly-added option works only for non-p2p migrate.
two is that based on my testing, if the network disconnection time exceeds 30 seconds. the migration will fail even though we recover the network service. I think 30 seconds
      is enough amount of time.

I could add command line options if we need it. the above is only my thoughts.
