[libvirt] [PATCH] virsh.pod: Update description
jferlan at redhat.com
Fri Jan 9 12:36:01 UTC 2015
The 'pool-build' command description for --overwrite and --no-overwrite
indicated usage for only 'filesystem' pools; however, the 'disk' pool
also supports the flags as of commit id 'afa1029a'. So add a description
for that usage.
