That makes it hard for perf to find it and even harder to get a list of
all VMs. With /proc/<pid>/kvm/guest we could symlink all guest
directories to /proc/kvm/ and perf reads the list from there. Also perf
can easily derive the directory for a guest from its pid.
Last but not least its kernel-created and thus independent from the
userspace part being used.
