Libvirt - Enable support for virtio-scsi controller

Registered by Vladik Romanovsky on 2014-01-28

VirtIO SCSI is a new para-virtualized SCSI controller device for KVM instances.
It has been designed to replace virtio-blk, increase it's performance and improve scalability.
The interface is capable of handling multiple block devices per virtual SCSI adapter,
keeps the standard scsi device naming in the guests (e.x /dev/sda) and support SCSI devices passthrough.
