Speaking of this, I've noticed that

<domain type='qemu'>
  <os>
    <type arch='i686' machine='pc'>hvm</type>
  </os>
</domain>

runs WITH kvm on an x86_64 system.  Is that intended?
It seems that this comment in qemu_conf.c:

    /* Need to explicitly disable KVM if
     * 1. Arch matches host arch
     * 2. Guest domain is 'qemu'
     * 3. The qemu binary has the -no-kvm flag
     */

might need to expand #1 to consider i686 == x86_64?
