- gpt-auto-generator: disable gpt auto logic for swaps if at least one is defined in fstab (bsc#897422)

- fstab-util: introduce fstab_has_fstype() helper

- fstab-generator: ignore root=/dev/nfs (#3591)

- fstab-generator: don't process root= if it happens to be 'gpt-auto' (#3452)

- virt: use XENFEAT_dom0 to detect the hardware domain (#6442, #6662) (#7581) (bsc#1048510)
