[libvirt] [PATCH 0/3] Add callback mech for qemu and nodedev

Add a callback mechanism for the nodedev driver (mimics the nwfilter)
to allow the (c)ability to directly enumerate node devices and add/remove
devices based on udev events.

This is a set up of sorts for the ability to add a vHBA definition
to a domain, create the vHBA, and allow the LUN's associated with the
vHBA to be automagially added/removed to/from the domain. The vHBA
code exists partially in some local branches I have, but I figure I
need to get this part of the logic accepted. See bz:


for some "thoughts" on where this is headed.

An alternative solution would require the qemu driver to handle or
recognize nodedev connection events, but would require a few more
calls in order to get the data needed for vHBA handling.

The logic ends up being "hidden" behind a new qemu configuration
variable "enumerate_nodedev" (I'm fine using a different name). The
default is for the code to be disabled.

The end result may be usable by the (on list) vGPU mdev code as well
as a way to find/recogize an mdev create and the various "children"
of the mdev that would be created (and of course deletion). But that's
just me considering other uses.

  nodedev: Add driver callback mechanism to add/remove devices
  qemu: Use nodedev callback mechanism to to get a nodedev data
  qemu: Add configuration variable to control nodedev enumeration
