I guess the driving question is: On an ongoing basis, will it be easy to 
build the newest qemu-kvm version against our kernel, and will the 
stability be good enough to consider "release" quality?

So far my experiences have been that the kernel versions are stable, and 
I haven't been wanting for particular features/speed/bugfixes from the 
bleeding edge. Have others had similar or different experiences?
