[ovs-dev] [PATCH 1/2] dpdk docs: Drop qemu-kvm for qemu-system-x86_64.

When explaining on how to add vhost-user ports to a guest, using
libvirt, point to the qemu-system-x86_64 binary by default, instead of
using qemu-kvm. The latter has been made obsolete and dropped from a
number of distributions (although it is still available on Fedora).

This has been verified on both a Fedora 27 image and a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
