[CentOS-virt] qemu-kvm rebuild in Centos for oVirt in SIG Virt

Is the plan to get the qemu-kvm build provided by CentOS to include
the "rhev-features"?  I recently updated to oVirt 4.1 and while my
hypervisors were in maintenance I performed an update of all packages,
including qemu-kvm and noticed the latest version
( in the CentOS repos still does not include
live  snapshot capability.

Any suggestion on how to version my internal rebuild of qemu-kvm to
prevent CentOS's RPM being installed?  My initial attempt is the

mock -D "dist .el6_5" -D "buildid .local" -r epel-6-x86_64
--with=rhev-features \
--rebuild /home/treydock/qemu-kvm/qemu-kvm- \
--resultdir=/home/treydock/qemu-kvm/rpms/local \

The resulting RPMs still contain the same version as CentOS's builds.
Do I need to extract the SRPM, modify the spec, then rebuild a SRPM
built using the modified spec?
