Yeah, the intent of this conditional code in the Perl bindings is to
be as conservative as possible. So use the old APIs in all scenarios
where they provide the required functionality.

    Yeah, we should consider to talk to older libvirtd, but I'm not sure which 
solution is better one: the one is to change 'flag' or relevant codes in libvirt-perl;
the other is to unify flag value such as also passing flag 'VIR_DOMAIN_AFFECT_CURRENT'
to qemuSetSchedulerParametersFlags() in libvirt?
