QEMU is a fast processor emulator: currently the package supports
ARM, CRIS, i386, M68k (ColdFire), MicroBlaze, MIPS, PowerPC, SH4,
SPARC and x86-64 emulation. By using dynamic translation it achieves
reasonable speed while being easy to port on new host CPUs.
This package provides a daemon (agent) to run inside qemu-system
guests (full system emulation).  It communicates with the host using
a virtio-serial channel org.qemu.guest_agent.0, and allows one to perform
some functions in the guest from the host, including:
- querying and setting guest system time
- performing guest filesystem sync operation
- initiating guest shutdown or suspend to ram
- accessing guest files
- freezing/thawing guest filesystem operations
- others.
Install this package on a system which is running as guest inside
qemu virtual machine.  It is not used on the host.
