[libvirt] [RFC PATCH 0/5] Qemu Monitor Passthrough

     As we discussed on the list, here are RFC patches that allow
both qemu monitor passthrough and the ability to specify extra
arguments to be passed on the qemu command-line.  I've specifically
not done the more complicated regex command-line editing for now,
since we don't have consensus on it.
     There are a few outstanding issues with these patches:

1)  Should we have a separate structure for the per-driver qemuMonitorCommand
entry point?

2)  Due to the way that virsh parses command-line arguments, it's not
possible to pass it an argument that has spaces (even if you properly
quote it).  Therefore I have a hack in place that will convert ^ to
space before passing it along, which is pretty crappy.  How should we go about
fixing this?  Fix virsh argument parsing, or go about it a different way?

Questions or comments about the patch series are welcome.
