qemu-kvm FTBFS on powerpc and ia64

qemu-kvm FTBFS on powerpc and ia64 in lucid. This is a combination of issues, as follows:
1: kvm support for newer powerpc is *very* new in the kernel, and the lucid kernels don't have the necessary patches (which would be too invasive to integrate). Simply disabling kvm for qemu builds is recommended by upstream:
2: ia64 host support is *extremely* new (first appearance upstream in March), and so nothing works at all on ia64 hosts.
Long-term, the correct fix is to have the necessary kernel/kvm/qemu patches land, and enable everything everywhere. For lucid, this simply cannot happen, but ia64 builds can be dropped and powerpc builds done without kvm support, which improves supportability.
