    Why are we rushing so much to do 64-bit paravirt that we are breaking
    working configurations? If the developement is going to be this
    chaotic, it should be done and tested out of tree until it can
    stabilize.

    I do not like having to continuously retest and review the x86 branch
    because the paravirt-ops are constantly in flux and the 32-bit code
    keeps breaking.

    We won't be doing 64-bit paravirt-ops for exactly this reason - is there
    a serious justification from the performance angle on modern 64-bit
    hardware? If not, why justify the complexity and hackery to Linux?
