I think is sane to update to qemu 4 to keep parity with NEMU and simplify our testing with testing.
We have to check how it works and what needs update:
Salvador already has PR to move to 3.0 that is looking to show any issue in the CI.
I did a test to build qemu 4.0 with current scripts and most of errors are just mismatch of files that we list on the spec file. I sent PR to fix this
The only blocker is Red Hat
I see that qemu build for rhel fails with:
`glib-2.40 gthread-2.0 is required to compile QEMU` are you able to build qemu 4.0 with your rhel systems?

Subject: [kata-dev] Qemu 4
Qemu 4 was released this week, is there a plan to start using this new version in kata containers?
In the meantime, I have created a new branch in kata-container/qemu  to test this new version + kata patches.
Only two patches were applied:
1. 9p optimizations.
2. vm-templating patch.
* Memory footprint looks better
