qemu provides -kernel and -initrd flags for this; however I don't know
if virt-manager supports this.
I find that a kernel+initrd inside the guest disk image is much more
maintainable; for example 'yum update kernel' will update your guest
kernel rather than having to copy files around.
I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
