[libvirt] f11 virt release notes freezing

I've been busy at my day job and not paying close enough attention to
Fedora 11 docs deadlines. Apparently the window for changes essentially
closes Wednesday (today).[1]

The notes are essentially in place. I don't think there are any gaping
holes, but I should have prompted for feedback much sooner. If you could
apply any love to the release notes[2] it would be appreciated. 

= QEMU / KVM =
It is noted that QEMU and KVM are merging as a package, but I've also
separately listed the fact that QEMU is now 0.10.0 and KVM is now 84. 

With the merge, might it be confusing or inaccurate to mention a
distinct new version of KVM? I'll admit to being somewhat fuzzy on
where/how that line is drawn.

I see[3] QEMU 0.10.0 in rawhide, but not 0.10.1, so I adjusted the
version in the relnotes. I copied the feature list from the 0.10.0
release announcement. If you'd care to suggest deletes or enhancements
of the list please do.

The KVM changelog since 74 (version at initial F10 release) is quite
long and not easily digestible by me at this late hour. Would anyone
care to offer some highlights or fill them into the wiki? Or, again,
should those be folded into QEMU?

= Libvirt =
I previously copied the list of changes from the releases, but did not
try to prune them down. It may be fine.
