Last time I checked those were pretty out of date.
You can use recent RHEV packages with ceph support:

Get the latest qemu-kvm-rhev source package here:

Build the rpm, install and install librbd1 package
You need to link the so file for it to work:
ln -s /usr/lib64/librbd.so.1  /usr/lib64/qemu/librbd.so.1
