This patch is fine, ACK.

I don't know if you're doing this already, but in Fedora we split up
the appliance dependencies like this:

  http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/libguestfs.git/tree/libguestfs.spec#n992

If you install the 'libguestfs-rescue' subpackage, you get the extra
dependencies (iputils, lsof, etc) added to virt-rescue.  If not, there
are fewer dependencies.
