Well thanks for the response
but the only new information that you provide is
that you will rebase qemu in rhev which "is not possible"
in rhel 7.

but I was asking for some kind of reasoning _why_
that's not possible _and_ additionally would like
to point out that no rebasing at all is needed as it's
just recompiling with one flag added.

I begin to think this has something to do with marketing
as there is apparently no technical reason to do this.

Of course I know that you can not simply introduce a new
version in rhel6, according to your update policy and
your qa.
