(I'm not part of RT team so I'm giving my personal opinion here)

I'd love to have an updated KVM on Lenny also because we do have
several problems in Xen support on that and KVM looks like a nice
alternative for most users. KVM is highly related to kernel and if it
was up to me I'd more inclined to update to latest version instead of
backport fixes since it does looks much risky in this case.
