I've read from the GSoC/2010 that some work was being done creating a

The status says that "mentor has merged it into his tree", but I cannot see
this command anywhere upstream, and it will come really handy for what I'm
trying to do, do someone know where this has gone?

I checked qemu.git/master and don't see it either.  The HMP "info net"
command lists the net devices but I'm not aware of a QMP equivalent.
What are you trying to do?

On Linux you can pass the name of the tap device you wish to create, and Qemu honors that, but on BSD systems you have no way of creating a tap device with a specific name, they are assigned based on the lowest free number (tap2 for example).

I need the query-netdev command in order to get the name of the device that Qemu creates, so I can use it in my scripts afterwards.
