Well what CentOS does at the moment is rm -rf tools/blktap2, then copy
the above repo into tools/blktap2.  It requires a couple of patches to
make things build / work (attached).

CentOS is using a snapshot from 2012 -- I haven't tried a more recent
version; but I *think* Fedora may be using a more recent one.  I think
Bob Ball might know more about the best way to link in this branch.
