Re: [Qemu-block] [PATCH] raw-posix: Deprecate host floppy passthrough

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3 (gnu/linux)

Forgot to mention:

1. For 2.3!

2. Testing without a physical floppy:

    # > /dev/fd0
    # chown armbru /dev/fd0

    $ qemu-system-x86_64 -nodefaults -fda /dev/fd0
    qemu-system-x86_64: -fda /dev/fd0: Host floppy pass-through is deprecated
    Support for it will be removed in a future release.
    WARNING: Image format was not specified for '/dev/fd0' and probing guessed 
             Automatically detecting the format is dangerous for raw images, 
write operations on block 0 will be restricted.
             Specify the 'raw' format explicitly to remove the restrictions.

   The long lines are ugly, but not this patch's fault :)
