I am using qemu-kvm version 1.1.2 (Debian prepackaged) with the -name
option, however
the process name shown by tools such as top still shows
all the qemu processes as just "kvm" which is not very informative.

Host kernel is Linux 3.2.0 (also Debian prepackaged)

cat /proc/<pid>/cmdline shows that the -name option was used, but argv0
is still just the qemu-kvm program itself.

The qemu man page says about the -name option "Also optionally set the
top visible process name in Linux.", but
no details are given as to when
it will actually do that.
