KVM or QEMU

Hi there,

Although for sure I've specified the hypervisor as KVM as in /etc/nova/nova.conf

libvirt_type=kvm

Or running

 egrep -c "(vmx|svm)" /proc/cpuinfo

will output

32

but processes that running, or other configs show that qemu is used (though I know that kvm is, or used to be, a fork of qemu):

/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -name instance-0000003c

Or when running

virsh dumpxml instance-00000039 | grep qemu

I will have the output:

<domain type='qemu' id='22'>
    <emulator>/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64</emulator>
      <driver name='qemu' type='qcow2' cache='none'/>
      <driver name='qemu'/>

Is it true that the qemu-kvm fork as been deprecated and merged into qemu development (as stated in http://wiki.qemu.org/KVM)? Is there any way to show exactly that Compute node is using KVM or not?

Thank you!
