    SubjectRe: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] KVM: Add wrapper script around QEMU to test kernels

    We're not restricting potential developers to Linux kernel folks. We're
    making it easy for them because we believe that the KVM tool is a
    userspace component that requires the kind of low-level knowledge Linux
    kernel developers have.

    I think you're looking at the KVM tool with your QEMU glasses on without
    realizing that there's no point in comparing the two: we only support
    Linux on Linux and we avoid hardware emulation as much as possible. So
    what makes sense for QEMU, doesn't necessarily translate to the KVM tool
    project.
