Hi Christian,

Here are two patches that enable running xm-test to test HVM domains
using your qemu patches. 

1) enable-ioemu-new-no-net.patch - This patch makes it possible to run a
domain without configuring a "vif". If there's no "-net" argument for
qemu, it defaults to "-net nic -net user", which doesn't work. This
patch simply adds "-net none" to arg list if no "vif" is configured.
This patch depends on your enable-ioemu-new patch.

2) xm-test-add-netdrv-option.patch - xm-test defaults to using the
pcnet32 driver for testing HVM domains. Since pcnet32 isn't applied to
the new qemu tree, we need to be able to configure xm-test to use a
different driver like the realtek 8139too.ko. This patch makes a new
configuration option for xm-test so you can specify
"--network-drv=8139too.ko" when you configure it. This patch doesn't
depend on your patches and can be applied to the base xen-unstable, if
so desired.

I've also included the report of an xm-test run with your qemu and these
two patches. There are just a couple errors to look at, but it ran well
for the most part.

Hope this helps.
