[libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: support vhost-net for generic ethernet devices



>From qemu's point of view these are still just tap devices, so there's
no reason they shouldn't work with vhost-net; as a matter of fact,
Raja Sivaramakrishnan <srajag00 yahoo com> verified on libvir-list
that at least the qemu_command.c part of this patch works:

(the hotplug case is extrapolation on my part).
