The reason I suggested qemu-linux is because I think QEMU's existing
naming sucks :-)

i.e. system/softmmu == "emulate a full machine" and user == "emulate the
linux kernel ABI"

system vs. linux makes it a little more sense, in my book.

As long it's just a Provides as danpb suggests, I don't mind ...
