Build KVM as a module or inside the kernel ?

kvm and/or kvm_amd (or kvm_intel).

I mean what is your opinion about it ?
Of course, i intend to use qemu A LOT ! At each boot, a virtual machine will load, and it will be the main system for the user.

I'm a kvm noob, so that's why i ask you all ;^).

From what I can see of this:

it depends on your kernel version. In general, I wouldn't build something in the kernel, as opposed to making a module, unless there was a good reason for it, but some people like building everything in the kernel and having no modules if possible.
