Better network volume support in the libvirt driver

Registered by Christoph Hellwig on 2012-11-05

Currently the libvirt network volume driver does only supports a source volume name attribute, but that is too little for some complex RBD or sheepdog configurations, and not enough for supporting NBD at all as the libvirt nbd support requires a source hostname and port attribute.
