Wouldn't be better if there was a global 'kvm=' which could have the
various overrides?

Hm. It looks like you forgot to CC the maintainers:

$ scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f include/linux/spinlock.h
Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> (maintainer:LOCKING PRIMITIVES)
Ingo Molnar <mingo@redhat.com> (maintainer:LOCKING PRIMITIVES)
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list:LOCKING PRIMITIVES)

Doing that for you.

I am assuming the reason you choose not to wrap this in a pvops
or any other structure that is more of hypervisor agnostic is
that only KVM exposes this. But what if other hypervisors expose
something similar? Or some other mechanism similar to this?
