Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v2 2/2] qemu: network user/direct/hostdev do not support backend.

On Fri, Nov 17, 2017 at 07:27:41PM -0200, Julio Faracco wrote:
The tag backend is not supported for user/direct/hostdev network when you
try to define them inside the domain XML. So, other ways to include devices
cannot be permitted too. But the attach-device command is wrongly adding
unsupported features. This commit fixes this bug.

After the patch:

virsh # attach-device rhel7.4 backend.xml
error: Failed to attach device from backend.xml
error: unsupported configuration: Custom tap device path is not supported for: user

Resolves: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1480251

Adding this 'else if' clause means that the following check is no longer
executed for TYPE_DIRECT and TYPE_HOSTDEV:

        } else if (net->guestIP.nroutes || net->guestIP.nips) {
            virReportError(VIR_ERR_CONFIG_UNSUPPORTED, "%s",
