On my RHEL 6.5 box, /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 does not exist.
Instead, Red Hat provides support only for /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm.  How
does your system have a /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64, through
self-installation?  Or is this a case of your vm1.xml incorrectly
calling out an <emulator> line that does not exist?
