    Thanks, I shall check that out, no mention of x86_64, but I shall have a
    look at the stuff below.
    From Documentation/ia64/kvm.txt
    1. Get the kvm source from git.kernel.org.
    Userspace source:
    git clone
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm-userspace.git

    Regards
    Sid.
