Thread-topic: [PATCH][XEND] Fix HVM Domain Creation When No Vifs Configured

I've been meaning to look into this.  I think I'd like to take a slightly
different approach:  change the default in qemu to be -net none.
I'll get to it eventually, but if you want to look into providing a patch,
that would be great!
