Cool, I'll have to check how to tweak xen build.
Will I have to change below disk lines of XL toolkit VM config somehow to
enable using Virtio drives emulation
or custom xen build just enable it by those kvm-enabled tweak for all HVM
guests within hypervisor?
vif = [ "model=virtio-net, mac=00:16:3e:11:77:f0, bridge=officevswitch1,
ip=10.91.0.224, vifname=cxqastfflivgrl" ]
disk = [
disk = [ "phy:/dev/iscsistore02/disk1238,ioemu:hda,w" ]
