[libvirt] [PATCH 3/5] Introduce forward mode='hostdev' for network XML in order to use the functionality of interface pools.



This new forward mode sets up a PCI network device to be assigned to the guest with PCI passthrough.
The PCI network device is chosen from an interface pool.
Currently there is no support for USB devices when using this forward mode.

Example XML:
Network XML:
<network>
  <name>direct-network</name>
  <uuid>81ff0d90-c91e-6742-64da-4a736edb9a8f</uuid>
  <forward mode="hostdev">
    <pf dev="eth2"/>
  </forward>
</network>

The above xml leads to the creation of an implicit interface pool and a free network device
is chosen from the pool. This patch would also work if an interface pool is given explicitly.
The interface dev value can be an interface name or a PCI device address.

Example XML:
Network XML:
<network>
  <name>direct-network</name>
  <uuid>81ff0d90-c91e-6742-64da-4a736edb9a8f</uuid>
  <forward mode="hostdev">
    <interface dev="0000:04:00.1"/>
    <interface dev="0000:04:00.2"/>
    <interface dev="0000:04:00.3"/>
  </forward>
</network>

The MAC address would be provided in the domain xml.
