essentially, this all looks good to me - thanks for the extensions.
Unfortunately, I was not yet successful in fully testing the code
because I have some issues with the underlying qemu that prevent my
machines from booting correctly with recent qemu-kvms. However, I came
across a small issue: When certain PCI devices are not present in the
system, libvirt can crash at startup. The attached patch fixes this.

Best, Wolfgang
