I'm not going to argue about the Qemu merging here.
But your above assessment is incomplete.

It is not because developers don't want to clone two different
trees that tools/perf is a success. Or may be it's a factor but
I suspect it to be very minimal. I can script git commands if
needed. It is actually because both kernel and user side are
sync in this scheme.

I think it has already really good results.
