Well, no.  It gets complicated :).  Since migration is one of the important
features of ovirt, we are basically carrying a custom kvm and libvirt patch so
that migration *does* work in ovirt.

The problem is, we can't carry that patch forever, and we can't commit to it for
libvirt either.  For what it's worth, I don't expect that it will take long to
resolve this upstream; once KVM gets it sorted, we will dump ovirt's custom
patches, get Rich's patches into libvirt, and be all upstream then.
