Are you not using the patchless client?  The patchless client works with
the vendor supplied kernel, so your kernel has whatever your vendor
normally builds into it.

I don't know that we "remove" kvm from our patched kernel.  It might be
that we disable the feature when we build it and it could be that you
simply need to enable it and rebuild the kernel.  But if we disable it,
it's entirely possible that it's for good reason.

My suggestion would be to use the patchless client and your choice of
vendor kernel.
