What problems are you having with those?  What specific ones are
problematic for you?  Libvirt adds a lot of things so that the domain is
predictable, it can talk to it later on and so on.  Some of them are
adding the same things you would have there without -no-defconfig and
similar.  Just so we can guarantee some compatibility etc.
