We never really did - but we also never fixed the issue: If you run the
current QEMU on a kernel before 3.15, it refuses to work due to the
missing in-kernel FLIC device:

Initialization of device s390-flic-kvm failed: KVM is missing capability
KVM_CAP_DEVICE_CTR

Since nobody really complained so far that running QEMU with KVM is
still required on a kernel < 3.15, I think we could make this also
"official" now and improve the error message a little bit, pointing the
user to a kernel >= 3.15.
