nova-compute to not hate me that much.
The error I'm getting is: libvir: QEMU error : internal error Cannot
find suitable emulator for x86_64
Running the same steps as in [1] seems to reproduce the same behavior.

The VB guest is 12.04.

nova-compute.conf has:

I guess my question is - where do i supply libvirt / nova the magical
'disable accel' flags? (i.e. '-machine accel=kvm:tcg', which seem to
make qemu happy).
