[libvirt] Cannot determine QEMU argv syntax with KVM 85



With KVM 85, it is impossible to start domains with libvirtd anymore (I 
tried both libvirtd 0.6.1 and 0.6.3):

# virsh start Cooker
error: Failed to start domain Cooker
error: internal error Cannot determine QEMU argv syntax /usr/bin/qemu-kvm

When I downgrade to KMV 84, everything is working again.

KVM 85's output of qemu --help:
