Description ev 2022-01-14 20:35:46 UTC
qemu-guest-agent-6.0.0 doesn't start on machine without sys-libs/liburing installed. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install qemu-guest-agent
2. don't install, uninstall or `rm /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/`
3. try to start qemu-ga
Actual Results:  
# ~ qemu-ga 
qemu-ga: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  
qemu-guest-agent should have liburing as a dependency, and should start normally.

I've encountered this issue while creating VM image out of stage3-amd64-hardened-nomultilib-openrc-20220109T170538Z.tar.xz
I'm using slightly modified default/linux/amd64/17.1/no-multilib/hardened profile.
 My custom profile just adds few packages and use flags. It shouldn't have influence over this issue. 
QEMU hypervisor I'm using on doesn't have "io-uring" flag enabled. I don't know if that matters.

I suspect this was fixed by..

commit dacdd43faeb28603ebc309270da07f16fb752d25

    app-emulation/qemu-guest-agent: version bump to 8.0.3

    Also pass --without-default-features to configure. As a result
    -Dauto_features=disabled will be passed to meson.
