Mike that's just as I suspected. To be super clear, does KVM in particular
know how to distinguish between Ubuntu v12 versus v16? In other words, do I
need to be running a specific version of KVM hypervisor so it can host
guests running the latest version of Ubuntu?

Again, this was brought up as being a firm requirement but I've never ever
heard of such a requirement unless we're debating KVM versus ESXi so I
wanted to get my facts straight before I confirmed to the team one way or
