[Libguestfs] libguestfs preview for RHEL 7.4

With the release of RHEL 7.3 happening today, fixing 88 reported bugs
in libguestfs and virt-v2v, and countless other ones, it's time to
look ahead to RHEL 7.4.

Again we intend to rebase libguestfs, virt-v2v and virt-p2v:

  1359086 NEW Rebase libguestfs in RHEL 7.4

To help with testing I have set up a preview repository here:


As always:

(1) THE PACKAGES ARE NOT SUPPORTED!  Do not contact Red Hat Support
about these packages.  However you are welcome to file bugs or send
comments to <libguestfs redhat com>.  The link for filing bugs is:


(2) These packages should work on top of RHEL 7.3 or CentOS 7.3.

(3) To install the packages you should create a yum repo file like the
one below, and then use yum commands as normal:

$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/libguestfs-RHEL-7.4-preview.repo 
name=libguestfs RHEL 7.4 preview

Notable changes in packaging:

 - The 'virt-v2v' package now only includes virt-v2v, not virt-p2v.

 - To build your own virt-p2v bootable USB key, install 'virt-p2v-maker'.

 - virt-v2v installs Windows virtio drivers using a new technique
   which tries to make the minimal possible changes to the Windows
   registry.  This may create exciting new bugs, so I'm particularly
   interested in further testing in this area.

 - There is currently a bogus dependency on 'kernel-rt' which
   shouldn't be there ... under investigation.
