Can't it go in hw/arm/kvm (mimicking the final desired place, which
will be target-arm/hw/kvm)? And hw/kvm can be moved to hw/i386/kvm, or
we can leave it there for now until we're ready to move it to

Anyway, not a big deal since you pointed out another (much better :))

Usage of subdirectory makefiles should be treated like a convenience, it isn't
mandatory.  You added hw/kvm/Makefile.objs in the patch that fixed
dependency inclusion, hence my confusion.  Please try to keep patches
separate for ease of review (especially because you then have separate
commit messages and separate justification for the various bits).

Indeed, that's a good idea.  However, your patch still won't add the
configuration variables to config-all-devices.mak (or it could be a new file
config-all-archs.mak).  This is necessary to move files into hw/Makefile.objs
that were in Makefile.target.
