Michal Privoznik 7b694f43f2 qemuxmlconftest: Introduce memory-hotplug-nvdimm-overlap test case
This new test case checks whether we are handling NVDIMMs
correctly when checking for overlapping memory devices (see
previous commit). Without previous commit, this test case would
fail, yet it was produced in real life (at least the NVDIMM
part) and thus it is valid.

Libvirt API for virtualization

Libvirt provides a portable, long term stable C API for managing the virtualization technologies provided by many operating systems. It includes support for QEMU, KVM, Xen, LXC, bhyve, Virtuozzo, VMware vCenter and ESX, VMware Desktop, Hyper-V, VirtualBox and the POWER Hypervisor.

For some of these hypervisors, it provides a stateful management daemon which runs on the virtualization host allowing access to the API both by non-privileged local users and remote users.

Layered packages provide bindings of the libvirt C API into other languages including Python, Perl, PHP, Go, Java, OCaml, as well as mappings into object systems such as GObject, CIM and SNMP.

Further information about the libvirt project can be found on the website:
