a restart is (almost) never the answer. i think a better approach would
be the following simple instructions

 if you have previously installed the kvm modules on your system, they
 need to be refreshed following an upgrade of your kvm packages.  please
 execute the following commands as root after the new packages are

  # m-a a-i kvm-source
  # modprobe kvm
