He was talking about running SVM code in KQemu/KVM. It might work with
kqemu (I honestly have not tested it, but see no reason it shouldn't),

of a KVM virtualized machine.

What would be the problem with supporting that in KVM? The host SVM
should just report that the guest is trying to execute an SVM insn and
generate an Illegal Operation which would be handled by qemu.


right now kvm never call to qemu for cpu emulation, qemu is used just for the devices, if kvm have something that it need to emulate it have a small emulator inside the kernel,

(ofcruse with modification what you just said is possible)
