qemu/libvirt/kernel etc. are provided by base OS, not RDO.
Fedora 22 has qemu 2.3.0 rc1
and for EL we would depend on CentOS VirtSIG to provide appropriate
qemu package, if base EL version is not enough.

Xen parts were not sub-packaged, our focus  was kvm, but I'd be happy
to review proposal to add it in openstack-nova RPM.
Please note that required libvirt-daemon-xen is not available on all
Fedora arches https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=996715#c14
so this needs to be resolved somehow.
