      Description

      Libvirt provides a away to provide smbios information to the guest.

      In RHEV this is done this way:

      <sysinfo type='smbios'>
      <system>
      <entry name='manufacturer'>Red Hat</entry>
      <entry name='product'>RHEV Hypervisor</entry>
      <entry name='version'>6.5-20131115.0.3.2.el6_5</entry>
      <entry name='serial'>49434D53-0200-904B-2500-4B902500B081_00:25:90:4b:81:b0</entry>
      <entry name='uuid'>6c7ffac8-0c30-408f-8da7-e3f6d2f9ed50</entry>
      </system>
      </sysinfo>
      <os>
      <type arch='x86_64' machine='rhel6.4.0'>hvm</type>
      <smbios mode='sysinfo'/>
      </os>

      We should provide this information to guest as well so guest can easily detect that they are running inside CloudStack.
