Thank you very much. The man page for virsh states for the 'detach-interface' command: "Please see documentation for detach-device for known quirks." And the 'quirks' part of 'detach-device': Quirk: Device unplug is asynchronous in most cases and requires guest cooperation. This means that it's up to the discretion of the guest to disallow or delay the unplug arbitrarily. As the libvirt API used in this command was designed as synchronous it returns success after some timeout even if the device was not unplugged yet to allow further in‐ teractions with the domain e.g. if the guest is unresponsive. Callers which need to make sure that the device was unplugged can use libvirt events (see virsh event) to be notified when the device is removed. Note that the event may arrive before the command returns.
