I tested this, it's very nice. A couple of notes I mentioned earlier in

- "UEFI existing varstore" should be reworded as "existing UEFI
varstore". This label & the associated file selection edit field &
button are visible in two cases (system-wide UEF and custom UEFI).

- A little wider text field / window size would be preferable for the
file selection line edits, so that the user can see the full path (or at
least a bigger portion of it). Not overly important if it would mess up
the higher level layout.

- I created, booted, and then shut down down a diskless F20 livecd. It
worked alright, but after shutting it down, virt-manager still listed it
as "Running". ("Virsh list" did not list it.) After quitting
virt-manager and restarting it, it picked up the correct status
(ie. shutoff). Not sure if this is related to OVMF. If you can't
reproduce this, please ignore this remark.

- I checked the system-wide vs. custom UEFI options, they work well.

- I tested the preexistent varstore case as well (with the system-wide
UEFI option). Works fine.

Thank you!
