Let me try to get the libguestfs requirements straight:

given a set of Windows drivers, it should be able to identify the ones
appropriate for the particular Windows flavor, in order to

  1) tell which devices can be configured

  2) offline-"install" the storage driver and thus enable the guest too
     boot

  3) copy over the matching drivers into the guest and allow it to pick
     them up on the first boot


Obviously virtio-win driver packaging and libguestfs must agree on how
to deal with this.

Could you please provide any guidance on how to address this problem?

Thanks,
Roman.
