this is new version of host device information bits, tested with PCI
devices as well.


I think we should support USB devices by bus/addr and PCI devices before

Well, I didn't find it in devs (get_devices()) so that I can't check how
to compare it using bus/addr. I've been using testdriver.xml you wrote
about but get_devices() returns empty list and I can't make PCI
passthrough working right on my machine.
Make sure you pull down the updated testdriver, and are using libvirt
0.7.2. You should see results from get_devices.
Oh, although I've been using updated testdriver from yesterday (I've downloaded it yesterday) I was using libvirt 0.7.0 so there were no corresponding results for that. I'm pulling down the latest libvirt to install it. Thanks for information
The libvirt test driver now supports host device routines as of 0.7.2,
so if you pull that version and install, you should be able to use my
updated test driver to emulate PCI and USB device passthrough:


Another thing, after looking at the UI changes, we are exposing a lot of
redundant info. If the device info lookup succeeds, we should just set
'Source Device' to use dev.pretty_name(), which gives all the info they
might want. This saves us having to add a bunch of UI fields that may
not be populated anyways.

What data would you like to limit it to? Source Device should be
dev.pretty_name() and what about other information? I have tested it on
WinXP virtual machine with Bluetooth device passed to the VM and all the
fields were populated. I am attaching a screenshot of my WinXP VM with
Bluetooth device assigned...

I would like to limit it to pretty_name only for now, since pretty name
contains both the product and device name, so listing them separately is

So you suggest that just showing one column, pretty name is enough? Not showing the Source Device that is identical to one in the list on the left ? It may confuse users if "Source Device" is shown in the left list and just pretty name is shown in the right details tab, don't you think?
