[pve-devel] [PATCH] add qemu guest agent client

Oh I miss that !

When QAPI-based QMP is available (somewhere around the QEMU 0.16 timeframe), a different host-side invocation that doesn't involve access to the guest agent outside of QMP will be used. Something like:

 qemu \
 -chardev qga_proxy,id=qga0 \
 -device virtio-serial \
 -device virtserialport,chardev=qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.0
 -qmp tcp:localhost:4444,server

So we just need to reuse qmp socket.
Is it already implemented ? (wiki is old, qemu 0.16....).

I'll do some tests

Documentation states that we can do all those thing via qmp in future! So why 
do we want to add all that code now?
