The plan is to ship an official release of kvm-userspace. Confusing,
right? :-)

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KVM_and_QEMU_merge

Basically, we're now building qemu from the kvm-userspace source
tarball.

The latest rawhide version is a git snapshot of kvm-userspace from a
stable branch based on qemu-0.10.x. We hope KVM upstream will release
and official version from this branch soon and we'll then include that.

In the future - maybe in time for F12 - all of kvm will be merged back
into qemu and we'll go back to shipping official qemu tarballs.

(Btw - fedora-virt-list is a good place to follow developments on this
front)

Cheers,
Mark.
