[libvirt] libvirt regression in managing qemu-system-arm

I've been experimenting with using libvirt to manage qemu-system-arm
VMs, and it's working fine in F12. However, in F13Alpha, the wrong
arguments are passed to the emulator -- I suspect that the x86 platform
versions of qemu accept new argument formats, and qemu-system-arm hasn't
been updated. The versions in F13alpha are qemu-system-arm 0.12.3 and
libvirt 0.7.6.

Could this be reverted, or the old code conditionally invoked?

Sample ARM root filesystem, domain XML, and kernel are located at
http://cdot.senecac.on.ca/arm -- as well as a wrapper script
for /usr/bin/qemu-system-arm that edits the command-line arguments.

Thanks for considering this--
