+  * qemu: Allow overrides of device properties via the qemu namespace
+    Users wishing to override or modify properties of devices configured by
+    libvirt can use the ``<qemu:deviceOverride>`` QEMU namespace element to
+    specify the overrides instead of relying on the argv passthrough of the
+    ``-set`` qemu commandline option which no longer works with new qemu.
