[libvirt] Release of libvirt-4.6.0



  Okay it took a bit longer than usual but the relrase is out, it's tagged
in git and signed tarball and rpms have been pushed to the usual place, but
there was quite a few bug fixes going in after RC2 was cut.

  ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

I also made libvirt-python 4.6.0 bindings release in a similar fashion
available at :

  ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/python/


  So though the release note don't list any bug fixes we know there is a
batch of those in, otherwise this is mainly features and improvement
targetting QEmu and virsh users:

New features:

- qemu: Implement the HTM pSeries feature
  Users can now decide whether HTM (Hardware Transactional Memory)
  support should be available to the guest.

- qemu: Enable VNC console for mediated devices
  Host devices now support a new atribute 'display' which can be used to
  turn on frame buffer rendering on a vgpu mediated device instead of on
  an emulated GPU, like QXL.

Improvements:

- qemu: Introduce a new video model of type 'none'
  Introduce a new video model type that disables the automatic addition
  of a video device to domains with 'graphics' specified in their XML.
  This can be useful with GPU mediated devices which can serve as the
  only rendering devices within the guest.

- virsh: Add --alias to attach-disk and attach-interface commands
  Add option --alias to set customized device alias name when using
  attach-disk or attach-interface commands.

- virsh: Support usb and sata address to attach-disk
  Usb or sata address could be used when attach-disk with --address. For
  example, use usb address as usb:<bus>.<port>, use sata address as
  <controller>.<bus>.<unit>.

  Thanks everybody for your help with this release, hopefully the next
one beginning of Sept will be more timely !

  Enjoy,

Daniel
