Not two separate programs. I think we would still use one version, but
using conditional compilation to get the kvm backend. The normal end-user
wouldn't have to cope with most kernel changes and the developer gets
his ps-kvm or whatever we want to name it. The same principle can be
applied to the tools as well.
