      Add missing paramter and unittests for this case · e695efbf
      Iustin Pop authored
      
      
      While git-am'ing the blockdev_prefix patch, I modified the hv_xen.py
      file but forgot to amend the patch :(, so here it is.
      
      Furthermore, to detect such inconsistencies in the future, a unittest is
      added that cross-checks the default parameters in constants.py and the
      hypervisor PARAMETERS dict.

      Adding blockdev_prefix to hypervisor options · 525011bc

      Allows to install Red Hat based systems, for example Oracle Linux.
      Tested with OEL.
      
      The hypervisor by default offers a device named 'sda'.  If the SCSI
      module is already loaded, the disk device can't be created due to naming
      conflict, and the disk is not available.  A workaround is to modify the
      initrd by removing the scsi driver from it.  This helps, but doesn't
      allow to install the OS.
      
      Red Hat's installer, anaconda, runs parted, which tries to execute a
      check against /dev/sda and fails.  This makes anaconda think that the
      disk is faulty, and not available.  The best way to work around this, is
      to declare 'xvda' as the xen disk device.  Red Hat version of parted
      package contains a patch which makes parted skip the SCSI test if device
      name starts with 'xvd'.
      
      This patch allows to pass -H xen-pvm:blockdev_prefix="xvd" and
      successfully run the Red Hat installer.
