Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: qemu-kvm

KSM is supported by the current Lucid kernel.  However, the current
version of the qemu-kvm package, 0.11, does not support KSM.  Therefore,
memory usage will be suboptimal, as this key feature is disabled for KVM
VM guests unless a high enough version of the qemu-kvm package is used.

Since this is an LTS release, I strongly recommend resolving this issue,
as virtualization features such as KSM are crucial for many users, and
failure to get this into the LTS release means LTS users will probably
have to wait another two years, or build things themselves (outside of
the shipped packages).
