The x- prefix means that the migration is still experimental; do we want
to be codifying the use of experimental API into libvirt, or is it time
for a patch to qemu to remove the x- prefix?  Back in the 1.5 timeframe,
when RDMA was first proposed, the x- prefix made sense, but now that we
are closer to qemu 1.6, and you are trying to get libvirt to drive it,
that's a declaration of stability.
