7.159. perl-Sys-Virt

Updated perl-Sys-Virt packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Sys::Virt module provides a Perl XS binding to the libvirt virtual machine management APIs. This allows machines running within arbitrary virtualization containers to be managed with a consistent API.

Bug Fixes

Previously, using the libvirt-tck utility to display virtual CPU (VCPU) information only printed a part of the expected diagnostics. With this update, the get_vcpu_info() function handles VCPU flags properly, and libvirt-tck displays the full extent of the expected information.
Prior to this update, using the libvirt-tck utility to find the parent device of a node device with no parent incorrectly returned a "libvirt error code: 0" error message. Now, it is valid for the virNodeDeviceGetParent() function to return NULL if the parent device is nonexistent, and the error message is no longer displayed.
Users of perl-Sys-Virt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
