The infrastructure assumes that you have a full OS available in the

busybox environment with Python embedded in it.

You could move whatever infrastructure qemu-test uses to kvm-autotest,
at which point kvm-autotest will know everything qemu-test knows.  But
there's zero reason to do that, autotest is designed to drive external
tests and in fact most of the tests it supports are not in the autotest

Yes. I think having a qemu-test driver for kvm-autotest that knows enough to invoke the qemu-tests and integrate the results in autotest results reporting is the right thing to do.
