NAME
       kvm - kvm-enabling wrapper for qemu-system-x86_64

DESCRIPTION
       The  kvm  wrapper  script  is  used  to  provide compatibility with old
       qemu-kvm package which has been merged into qemu as of version 1.3.

       The script executes
              qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm
       passing all other command-line arguments to the qemu binary.   This  is
       not  the same as old kvm binary, which was using less strict construct,
       similar to
              qemu-system-x86_64 -machine accel=kvm:tcg
       New wrapper ensures that kvm mode is enabled, or the VM will not start,
       while  old code falled back to emulation (tcg) mode if kvm isn't avail-
       able.

SEE ALSO
       qemu-system(1).
