Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 3/3] vbox: Register per partes

Since times when vbox moved to the daemon (due to some licensing
issue) the subdrivers that vbox implements were registered, but not
opened since our generic subdrivers took priority. I've tried to fix
this in 65b7d553f39ff9 but it was not correct. Apparently moving
vbox driver registration upfront changes the default connection URI
which makes some users sad. So, this commit breaks vbox into pieces
and register vbox's network and storage drivers first, and vbox driver
then at the end. This way, the vbox driver is registered in the order
it always was, but its subdrivers are registered prior the generic
ones.

Couldn't you just do:

libvirt_driver_vbox_network_la_LIBADD = libvirt_driver_vbox_impl.la
libvirt_driver_vbox_storage_la_LIBADD = libvirt_driver_vbox_impl.la

Or just symlink these to the original one?  Of course you would export
all three register symbols, but just use the one you want for each
load.  Or am I missing something why that wouldn't work?

It would look a bit nicer, I guess, if we just loaded the symbols in
virDriverLoadModule() into some kind of table (or list) and then
register them later on, but I understand this is just a fix so 1.2.8
is not broken and that suggestion might be done later.

We could also do:

#define virDriverLoadModule(x) virDriverLoadModuleFull(x, 0)

and then load each driver like this, for example:

virDriverLoadModuleFull("vbox", VIR_DRIVER_NETWORK);

Anyway, back to the stuff that's relevant for 1.2.8...

Everything looks fine from my POV and I tested what I could.  I,
however, have neither vbox nor xen installed to test what were the
issues in the first place, so I would like to ask whomever reported
the issue or uses those drivers to let us know before we merge this.

ACK series, but we should wait until at least rc0 to push this.  If
nobody else replies, I'd merge this into rc0 to let others test it
before the actual release.
