[virt-tools-list] [PATCH] To support huge-sized page



From: Li Zhang <zhlcindy linux vnet ibm com>

On some CPU architectures, huge-sized page are supported for
performance boost. However, virt-manager doesn't support the
feature of huge-sized page explicitly.

The patch is addressing the issue. Support of huge-sized page
will be implemented in the Guest object so that the virt-manager
can configure.
