not at all, it is quite orthogonal to what Linux-VServer
is doing, similar to the Xen project ...
KVM is handling full system virtualization, which, as
noted on that page, will allow you to run unmodified
'images' (operating systems including kernel) in a
virtual environment. naturally this adds quite some
overhead to the environment and requires independant
kernels, caches, disk images, etc ...
Linux-VServer OTOH, is virtualization, or more precisely
isolation at the operating system level, so actually
between kernel and userspace, which allows to share
a lot of common data, adjust resources very easily and
avoid the overhead of duplicate caching, network stacks
and additional indirections ...
