Seems like every update except ppc has come from mainline.  Personally,
I don't think it makes sense anymore.  QEMU has scope beyond KVM and it
makes about as much sense to snapshot kvm.git as it does to snapshot my
vfio next branch or Michael's virtio queue.  If we only pull from
mainline we never have to worry about regressing something that isn't
actually upstream yet.  Thanks,
