I think you should put both code snippets somewhere else. This has probably nothing to do
with the uevent. Instead this should go into kvm_destroy_vm and kvm_create_vm. Make sure
to take care of the error handling.

Can you point us to the original discussion about the why and what you are
trying to achieve?
