virtinst should support kvm-img and qemu-img

Description of problem:
virtinst relies on qemu-img to exist at runtime. Several distros install all of kvm with the utilities prefixed as kvm- so that there's not a file collision when installing qemu.
Attached is a patch that should make it work in those cases.
Huh, good to know.
I would also recommend you file a bug against libvirt for the same issue: libvirt storage APIs use qemu-img for all non-raw provisioning. It should be as simple as changing the configure script to look for kvm-img as well.
Will do Cole. I'm actually in the process of writing the patch for libvirt. It's a little bit more involved since I'm refactoring some code to support a few of the /* XXX: Need to support this when qemu-img does */ sections because kvm-img actually supports those features.
Thanks, pushed now:
Closing as UPSTREAM.
