There's two overlapping questions here:

  (1) Does it make sense to merge the KVM tool to Linux kernel tree?

  (2) Does it make sense to merge userspace tools to the kernel tree?

I'm not trying to use perf to justify merging the KVM tool. However, you
seem to be arguing that it shouldn't be merged because merging
userspace tools in general doesn't make sense. That's why I brought up
the situation with perf.
