KVM and Xen virtual machines via libvirt.

provisioning libvirt virtual machines, including virt-install and
virt-clone.

The virt-manager release includes:

The virtinst release includes:

- New virt-install --console option for specifying virtio console device

  channel

  order, direct kernel/initrd boot, and enabling boot device menu.
- New virt-install --initrd-inject option, which enables installation
  using a _local_ kickstart file (Colin Walters)

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release through testing,
bug reporting, submitting patches, and otherwise sending in feedback!
