     the documentation was improved to document the intricacies.

     it caused bogus errors when address wasn't allocated when hotplugging a
     disk. The check is now removed as it wasn't actually necessary at all.
+  * qemu: Open chardev logfile on behalf of QEMU
+    Guests with a logfile configured for their chardevs are now able to start
+    when even no virtlogd is configured.
+  * virhostmem: Handle numactl-less build in hugepages allocation/reporting
+    Some architectures don't have notion of NUMA (e.g. s390x) but do support
+    hugepages. Libvirt silently ignored requests to allocate/report hugepage
+    pool when built without numactl. This is now fixed and the pool can be
+    allocated/reported on properly.
