From: Chen Hanxiao <chenhanxiao at cn.fujitsu.com>

 As a result of CVE-2011-4127, libvirt disabled generic SCSI
 commands passed through to the underlying disk by qemu
 from a guest to a virtio disk when device type is "disk"
 afer commit 177db087757e4adb02c211de56336a5991c8eb20.
 And libvirt introduce a new device type "lun"
 to allow SG_IO commands passing through.
 This patch allows VM admin to configure this via virt-manager.
