AIUI it, the plan is:

  - There will be stable releases of qemu-kvm in sync with qemu 
    upstream releases - e.g. you can expect a qemu-kvm-0.11.0 release
    shortly after qemu-0.11.0 is released

  - There will be no stable releases, as such, of the kernel module. 
    You should use upstream linux releases instead - e.g. the latest
    stable release is 2.6.29.2

  - The kvm-XX releases are development snapshots of the kvm.git and 
    qemu-kvm.git code

For example, in Fedora, our plan is that we will ship the kvm.ko
included in upstream linux releases and the qemu-kvm stable releases[1].
We may include qemu-kvm from kvm-XX releases during the development of
the next Fedora release, but only as a preview of the next qemu-kvm
stable release.

Cheers,
Mark.
