It is not really a patch - it is just the way oVirt configures its managed
node virtualization host at startup.

The managed node has a whole bunch of services running, of which libvirtqpid
is just one. So, after networking comes up, oVirt queries the SRV records
for all the services it cares about, and uses augeas to edit the config
files to point to these services.
