NAME

       kvm - kvm-enabling wrapper for qemu-system-x86_64

DESCRIPTION

       The  kvm  wrapper  script is used to provide compatibility with old qemu-kvm package which
       has been merged into qemu as of version 1.3.

       The script executes
              qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm
       passing all other command-line arguments to the qemu binary.  This is not the same as  old
       kvm binary, which was using less strict construct, similar to
              qemu-system-x86_64 -machine accel=kvm:tcg
       New  wrapper  ensures  that  kvm mode is enabled, or the VM will not start, while old code
       falled back to emulation (tcg) mode if kvm isn't available.
