[libvirt] [PATCH] docs: rudimentary phyp documentation



Based on a report that phyp is undocumented:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvirt-users/2012-July/msg00013.html

* docs/drvphyp.html.in (phyp): New file.
* docs/drivers.html.in: List it.
---

Following up on an old thread.  This is probably incomplete or
possibly even inaccurate, but I'd rather have something than nothing.
If I don't get any feedback within a week, I'm pushing this as-is.

+    <h1>IBM PowerVM hypervisor driver (phyp)</h1>
+    <ul id="toc"></ul>
+    <p>
+        The IBM PowerVM driver can manage both HMC and IVM PowerVM
+        guests.  VIOS connections are tunneled through HMC.
+    </p>
+
+
+    <h2><a name="project">Project Links</a></h2>
+    <ul>
+      <li>
+        The <a href="http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/virtualization/index.html";>IBM
+        PowerVM</a> hypervisor
+      </li>
+    </ul>
+
+
+    <h2><a name="uri">Connections to the PowerVM driver</a></h2>
+    <p>
+        Some example remote connection URIs for the driver are:
+    </p>
+<pre>
+phyp://user hmc/system (HMC connection)
+phyp://user ivm/system (IVM connection)
+</pre>
+    <p>
+        <strong>Note</strong>: In contrast to other drivers, the
+        PowerVM (or phyp) driver is a client-side-only driver. Therefore, the
+        <a href="remote.html">remote transport mechanism</a> provided by the
+        remote driver and libvirtd will not work, and you cannot use URIs like
+        <code>phyp+ssh://example.com</code>.
+    </p>
+
+
+    <h3><a name="uriformat">URI Format</a></h3>
+    <p>
+        URIs have this general form (<code>[...]</code> marks an
+        optional part, <code>{...|...}</code> marks a mandatory choice).
+    </p>
+<pre>
+phyp://[username ]{hmc|ivm}/managed_system
