Re: [PATCH v2] qemu: Do not silently allow non-available timers on non-x86 systems

Reviewed-by: Boris Fiuczynski <fiuczy linux ibm com>

On 8/5/20 12:22 PM, Thomas Huth wrote:
libvirt currently silently allows <timer name="kvmclock"/> and some
other timer tags in the guest XML definition for timers that do not
exist on non-x86 systems. We should not silently ignore these tags
since the users might not get what they expected otherwise.
Note: The error is only generated if the timer is marked with
present="yes" - otherwise we would suddenly refuse XML definitions
that worked without problems before.
