[libvirt] [PATCH 0/8 v2] Glue domain and storage



This is the 4th part to implement NPIV migration support [1].

Part 1 and part 2 are pushed.

Part 3 (v3: pending for review):
  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2013-March/msg01440.html

======

This introduces new XMLs to specify the disk source with storage like

  <disk type='volume' device='disk'>
    <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none'/>
    <source pool="$pool_name" volume='$vol_name'/>
      <seclabel relabel='no'/>
    </source>
    <target dev='vdb' bus='virtio'/>
  </disk>

And before domain starting, and disk attaching/updating, the source represented
by storage is translated into the real underlying storage volume.

Future work:
  * Support network volume
  * Support disk backing chain?

v1 - v2:
  * Invoke storage APIs to translate the source directly in qemu driver
  * 1/8 in v1 is pushed.
  * 2/8 in v1 is splitted (the code refactoring now is a standalone patch)
  * Support shared disk for volume type disk
  * Support sgio setting for volume type disk
  * No network volume support in v2
  
RFC - v1:
  * The XMLs are more simpler - only using pool name and volume
    name to specify disk source.
  * Support network pool (rbd, and sheepdog)
  * Support startupPolicy for volume type disk
  * Support seclabels for volume type disk
  * Fix bugs on disk source formating

Osier Yang (8):
  conf: New helper virDomainDiskSourceDefFormat to format the disk
    source
  Introduce new XMLs to specify disk source using libvirt storage
  qemu: Translate the pool disk source when building drive string
  Support startupPolicy for 'volume' disk
  Support seclabels for volume type disk
  qemu: Translate the pool disk source earlier
  qemu: Support shareable volume type disk
  qemu: Support sgio setting for volume type disk
