Package: libvirt-daemon
Version: 4.10.0-2
Severity: normal

Upstream now has an "iscsi-direct" storage backend which has several
advantages over the iscsiadm-based "iscsi" storage backend, including
performance and not having the iscsi devices visible to the rest of the

Debian's libvirt-daemon package should build with this enabled, or provide a
libvirt-daemon-driver-storage-iscsi-direct package.
