*Ahem* let me clear my throat:

        * /dev/ksyms is now mandatory if you want kvm tools to work in
          their default configurations

        * libkvm and its clients can get anything from /dev/ksyms they
          could get from the kernel executable

        * Any case where that's not so is a bug and should be fixed.
