Hi Pekka,

Sorry for the delay, I've been away from email for a few days.

Sure thing. I'll sync-up with Andre and reply back here when we've got
something sensible.

One extra point that I don't think has been mentioned in this thread so
far is that separating kvmtool from the kernel sources is likely a
prerequisite for distribution packaging. Once we've got something sorted
out, I'll poke some friendly local debian developers and see if they can't
package it up for us.
