>From my comprehension, (correct me if I'm wrong), xvd frontend devices
should be used instead of hd and sd devices in the medium/long term. By
now, using sd devices does not even seems to always work. Shouldn't it
be te case for us to deprecate it's usage?

I got a simple patch that does it in case it's of interest, but some
questions still remains, like: Is leaving the message enough, or can we
do better, by making sure a xvd is used, even if it was not requested?

Comments very welcome,
