Subject [GitHub] cloudstack issue #1955: CLOUDSTACK-8239 Add VirtIO SCSI support for KVM host...

Github user nathanejohnson commented on the issue:
    Also, I just made a commit, I have not squashed it because I wanted to get some feedback.
 I noticed that vmware uses details to pass rootDiskController for the bus type, and there
was even some code that inspected this in the kvm plugin.  With this latest commit, it will
actually honor either OS type "Other PV Virtio-SCSI" or rootDiskController passed in via details,
with details overriding OS type.  I also made a minor tweak to the UI to allow setting the
root disk bus via the add template dialog in the UI:
    So this way you can select virtio scsi by one of the following three ways:
    1) selecting os type as "Other PV Virtio-SCSI (64 bit)"
    2) uploading a template and specifying details[0].rootDiskController=scsi, either from
the UI or the API, then creating a VM from this template
    3) deploying a VM and specifying details[0].rootDiskController=scsi , currently only available
via the API
