  Okay, commited !
I just had to tweak a couple of things, about the symbol exports, the
public one didn't apply directly, and the private one needed at least
virGetInterface to be added, then I also had to comment out the
interface driver startup in do_open, because it raised an escalation
of privilege (though polkit) breaking make tests. And until we have a
real driver here, I think it's fine to comment it out. But those 2 items
are in.
 Now can you double check src/libvirt_private.syms in case more are
missing ?
 Also we need XML parsers and exporters for the interface structures,
I assume you will use the current netcf ones, right ?


  I will look into this,

  Thanks !
