[libvirt] [PATCH] news: Update for 3.9.0 release



Signed-off-by: Andrea Bolognani <abologna redhat com>
---
As usual, a lot of changes have made it to master without the release
notes being updated at the same time.

I'll push this tomorrow in the morning, so that it can make it into
the release, unless it gets (N)ACKed earlier.

+          Multiqueue support for <code>virtio-blk</code> has been available
+          in QEMU ever since 2.7.0, and now libvirt guests can enable it.

+          Recent QEMU versions can expose information about which CPU models
+          are available and usable on the host; libvirt will now make use of
+          such information whenever possible.

+        <description>
+          libvirt will now obtain the (dynamically allocated) RDP port number
+          from VirtualBox itself, avoiding conflicts between multiple guests
+          wanting to use RDP at the same time.

+        <description>
+          On a host where tons of unique instances are executed per day, it's
+          quite possible that while each of the single log files are quite
+          small, they will build up to quite a bit of clutter. Removing the
+          constraints that log have to be bigger than 100 KiB before they can
+          be rotated solves the issue.

+        <description>
+          While it's reasonable to turn off client certificate validation,
+          as setting it up can be non-trivial, clients should always verify
+          the server certificate to avoid MITM attacks. libvirt was, however,
+          using the same knob to control both checks, leading to
+          CVE-2017-1000256 / LSN-2017-0002.
