This bug was fixed in the package qemu-kvm - 1.0+noroms-0ubuntu14.6

qemu-kvm (1.0+noroms-0ubuntu14.6) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Fix qemu-kvm.upstart: just don't run in a container.  Otherwise we'll
    still try to load/unload kernel modules.  Also undo the || true after
    sysfs writes.  Since setting those is a part of configuring qemu-kvm
    on the host, failing when they fail makes sense.

qemu-kvm (1.0+noroms-0ubuntu14.5) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * add udev to qemu-kvm Depends to ensure that postinst succeeds.
    (LP: #1080912)

qemu-kvm (1.0+noroms-0ubuntu14.4) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  [ Serge Hallyn ]
  * debian/qemu-kvm.postinst: use udevadm trigger to change /dev/kvm perms as
    recommended by Steve Langasek (LP: #1057024)
  * apply debian/patches/nbd-fixes-to-read-only-handling.patch from upstream to
    make read-write mount after read-only mount work.  (LP: #1077838)

  [ Robert Collins ]
  * Fix upstart job to succeed if ksm settings can't be altered in the same way
    other settings are handled. (LP: #1078530)
