On linux-26..20-rc2, "modprobe kvm-intel" loaded the module
successful, but running qemu returns a error ...

/usr/local/kvm/bin/qemu -hda vdisk.img -cdrom cd.iso -boot d -m 128
open /dev/kvm: No such file or directory
Could not initialize KVM, will disable KVM support

/dev/kvm does not exist.... should I create this before running qemu?
If so, what's the parameters to "mknod"?
