Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 0/5] Support forward mode='hostdev' and interface pools



Hello all,

I have actually based these patches of v0.9.12.

Top of tree libvirt had some errors due to which I was not able to use virsh and test these patches so I based them off the last release.

But these patches should work equivalently well with top of tree.

Many Thanks,
Regards,
Shradha Shah
