> Libvirt provides a away to provide smbios information to the guest.
> In RHEV this is done this way:
>   <sysinfo type='smbios'>
>     <system>
>       <entry name='manufacturer'>Red Hat</entry>
>       <entry name='product'>RHEV Hypervisor</entry>
>       <entry name='version'>6.5-20131115.0.3.2.el6_5</entry>
>       <entry name='serial'>49434D53-0200-904B-2500-4B902500B081_00:25:90:4b:81:b0</entry>
>       <entry name='uuid'>6c7ffac8-0c30-408f-8da7-e3f6d2f9ed50</entry>
>     </system>
>   </sysinfo>
>   <os>
>     <type arch='x86_64' machine='rhel6.4.0'>hvm</type>
>     <smbios mode='sysinfo'/>
>   </os>
> We should provide this information to guest as well so guest can easily detect that they
are running inside CloudStack.
