I have a very small patch into config.py adding an 'emulator' node to the
generated XML on instance spawn.

For future people customizing QEMU you will have to configure AppArmor
(Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server here) to allow execution of the QEMU binary, and I
also had to enable reading of 'bios.bin' from my customized QEMU install

My reason for doing this is that I am testing out some experimental QMP
commands and just need instances started with a special version of QEMU.
