[fedora-virt] [RFC] qemu-kvm packaging changes [Fwd: [Bug 509532] Move /usr/bin/qemu-kvm into the qemu-kvm package]


See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/509532 for some qemu-kvm packaging
changes proposed for Fedora 12

Basically, it means that we'll be moving the /usr/bin/qemu-kvm binary
from the qemu-system-x86 package to the qemu-kvm package

Any comments?

Okay, what I'm going to do is move /usr/bin/qemu-kvm, kvm.modules and
80-kvm.rules into the qemu-kvm package

The %post scriptlet to run kvm.modules and the kvm Provides/Obsoletes will also
be moved

The obvious concern is that if people only have qemu-system-x86 installed and
update, they lose /usr/bin/qemu-kvm

However, since we've always had qemu-kvm in comps, I expect it will only affect
a small number of people and I think it's okay to make this change.

Also, note that the likes of libguestfs explicitly requires qemu-kvm, rather
than qemu-system-x86
