Hi All,

I have attached a patch which when applied on the HEAD would
allow virtualbox support in libvirt.

The steps to apply patch are:
tar -zxvf vbox-patch.tar.gz
git-apply vbox-patch

The patch works very well with the VirtualBox OSE svn HEAD and
is supposed to support VirtualBox 2.2 onwards both editions.

If anyone wants to run it on current VirtualBox OSE svn HEAD
(2.1.51_OSE r17375) then the steps are as follows:

1)After compiling and installing VBox OSE you need to copy the
file out/linux.amd64/debug/bin/VBoxXPCOMC.so to the install
2) export VBOX_APP_HOME=<install dir>
3) run virsh to connect to virtualbox as below:
virsh -c vbox:///session
