As you know, the is no more development in hyperv libvirt driver since version 0.10.2.
The last development was committed 2 years ago:
Subsequent commits are fixes for reported issues; the last commit has been done about 2 month ago:
Therefore, I didn’t miss any features … (verified after a sync)
I understand that it would be easier for you to review the code to have the patch split by feature.
I will make may best to help you in this way…
Is that the last requirement ?

Please split each of these bulleted list items into a separate patch, for easier review. No one likes to review a 150k single patch.
Also, it looks like you just missed feature freeze for 1.2.9; by the time you've split the series, it is probably a better candidate for inclusion in 1.2.10 around the end of October.
