Just to add to Ingo's and HPA's views...

Jaswinder, if you go back and look at the LKML discussions that we had
regarding these patches, you would notice, this breakdown was done
intentionally. Even if individual hypervisors implement things
differently, we still have a common way for the kernel to interact with
them, which is through the interface that hypervisor.c exports.
