I have to admit my overall knowledge of libvirt pretty limited, probably
because of that I'm failing to see benefits of doing such split for
Qemu/KVM-only features (as the whole Hyper-V emulation is
Qemu/KVM-only). How is the first patch going to be tested? Compile-only?
Also, which of these patches should src/cpu/* hunks go to?

Would realy appreciate some guidance here) Thanks!
