FYI: I have been doing something similar on my own.  First create a clone, on the clone, I create an rpm with make kvm-rpm.  Install the RPM on the clone then create test-docmains. then just spin up nics and remove libreswan:)

So one issue is there is no target to clone nic, aka regular host -- without libreswan, and a separate one for swanhosts.

While working on xfrmi I needed test vms with bigger disk image, 32 or 64GB, to compile mainline kernel. After that on my to do list is to make the image size a variable.
