Maybe CC: Paolo for "Character devices"? But sure, if nobody else takes
it, it should be fine in the s390 tree, too.

I think I'd prefer "kvm:tcg" here to speed up the test if possible.
The reason for only using "tcg" in the past was that there was an
annoying warning message "kvm accelerator not found" or so when also
specifying kvm here, but that has been fixed just recently, so "kvm:tcg"
should be fine now here, too.
