Thanks, I've updated the distro support matrix wiki:


So it sounds like we're good to bump the minimum required libvirt to 
1.2.9 in Pike which drops support for SLES 12, Ubuntu 14.04, RHEL 7.1 
and Oracle 7.

We'll bump the minimum required QEMU in Pike to 2.1.0 which in addition 
to the above distro versions also drops support for Oracle 7.3. From my 
30 seconds of googling I don't see any upcoming announcements for a 
newer version of Oracle Linux.
