I only changed the readme - so I did not upload it again (makes no sense).

we include the kvm module in the kernel package. IMO this makes sense.

I don't want to post my dpkg -l (does not help anyways).

The latest source is available, so I do not understand your suggestion. If something
does not work we(you) need to debug it.
