Thanks, Ryan.

Indeed - there were several problems affecting /dev/kvm after a fresh install, and while raring got all the fixes, precise and quantal did not get one (presumably because I did not think they were affected).

We will need to do the following in both precise and quantal:

1. add acl to qemu-kvm's Depends:
2. add

if [ -c /dev/kvm -a ! -L /dev/kvm ]
  /usr/bin/setfacl -m g::rw /dev/kvm

to debian/qemu-kvm.postinst above the udevadm trigger

This will need to be done after the current qemu-kvm is promoted from -proposed. I'll make a note to check back in a week.

Thanks for pointing this out!
