[feature-request] Direct Linux Boot

Description

Direct Linux Boot means that the user can specify guest kernel and initrd and boot Linux guest directly, either from CD/DVD, or from HDD, bypassing guest's bootloader.

This is useful for unattended installs, such as where you can command paths for Fedora/Red Hat anaconda to automatically install guest OS.

This is also useful for kernel developers, who want to quick test a kernel.

Note that Qemu (and KVM and Xen) have this feature.
