I'm going to make a perhaps-controversial suggestion:

This feature should be deprecated for 4.7.  Specifically,
 - the warning about running qemu as root should go away
 - the docs should mention that running qemu not as root
   may well break things

Right now, the privsep is not finished and I think trying to run qemu
as non-root won't (usually) actually work.
