parentWin32: Fix default prefix (diff)
Add new block driver for the VDI format (only aio supported)
This is a new block driver written from scratch to support the VDI format in QEMU. VDI is the native format used by Innotek / SUN VirtualBox. Latest changes: * stripped down version (code for synchronous operations and experimental code removed) * don't open VDI snapshot images (with uuid_link or uuid_parent) * modified vdi_aio_cancel Signed-off-by: Stefan Weil <> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <> Message-Id:
