[libvirt] [PATCH] news: remove kernel version reference from switchdev entry

Posted by Ján Tomko 60 weeks ago
The functionality was added in 4.8, but due to a rename of
the DEVLINK_CMD_ESWITCH_GET constant in the kernel headers,
the headers from kernel 4.11 are required by the libvirt code.

Remove the reference from the news entry, since it could be
misleading.
