Thanks for starting this patch.  Since this adds new XML, you also need
to patch docs/formatdomain.html.in to document it,
docs/schemas/domaincommon.rng to allow 'virt-xml-validate' to recognize
it, and tests/qemuxml2* to add a new testsuite that proves we can parse
the new XML as valid, round-trip it through our internal representation,
and generate the correct command line option.  Also, it helps if the
commit message describes the actual XML you added to expose the option.

Are you able to help add those pieces to get this patch incorporated?

You added a parser for the new function, but did not modify the output
function, which means your action is one-way; it won't survive a round
trip to 'virsh dumpxml' and would be lost the next time we use the
domain.  Again, that's why we insist on testsuite additions for new XML

It is probably also wise to split this into two patches.  Not all
versions of qemu support the new option, so we probably want to add a
feature bit into qemu_capabilities.[hc] that probes when we can safely
use the feature, so that we can issue a graceful error for qemu versions
that lack it.  In which case you want two patches - one for the XML
addition, and one for the qemu capability addition.
