I'm trying to create a pv guest with qcow/qcow2 disk image by xl, it always fails atlibxl_device_disk_local_attach.
#xl create pv_config_file
libxl: error: libxl.c:1119:libxl_device_disk_local_attach: cannot locally attach a qdisk image if the format is not raw
libxl: error: libxl_create.c:467:do_domain_create: failed to run bootloader: -3

Does that mean we cannot create such a pv guest by xl? I'm not clear why it behaves like this, could anyone give some hints?
