    SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 00/18] KVM: x86: CPU isolation and direct interrupts handling by guests

    There were some missing pieces for trying this patch series.

    Firstly, the patch is for v3.5-rc4, but that version has an issue
    that it cannot passthrough PCI devices because of genirq changes.
    A patch to avoid this issue is available at .

    Secondly, to successfully build the patched qemu-kvm, you need the
    following additional definitions to qemu-kvm's header files for KVM.

    diff -u -r qemu-kvm-0.15.1/linux-headers/linux/kvm.h qemu-kvm-0.15.1-test/linux-headers/linux/kvm.h
