Keep in mind that Kashyap has a tendency to want the latest and greatest 
of libvirt and qemu at all times for all of those delicious bug fixes. 
But we also know that new code also brings new not-yet-fixed bugs.

Keep in mind the big picture here, we're talking about bumping from 
minimum required (in Rocky) libvirt 1.3.1 to at least 3.0.0 (in Stein) 
and qemu 2.5.0 to at least 2.8.0, so I think that's already covering 
some good ground. Let's not get greedy. :)
