Bug#582212: Sorry, but I believe this bug was more of a misconfiguration.

I'm afraid your problem doesn't have anything to do with kernel or kvm.
If you do have evdev loaded then I'd say that the problem is the new kernel
with oldstable dist, more exactly acpi related packages, if I remember it
correctly when running a squeeze kernel on top of lenny you had to be
running squeeze's acpi packages (no problems of dependencies or any others
appreciated on my setup) in order for events and other acpi stuff to work.
See if you can confirm this in order for the bug to be closed.
