Subject[PATCH 5/7] paravirtualization: Allow disabling legacy power management modes with paravirt kernels
From
Date
Two legacy power management modes are much easier to just explicitly disable
when running in paravirtualized mode - neither APM nor PnP is still relevant.
The status of ACPI is still debatable, and noacpi is still a common enough
boot parameter that it is not necessary to explicitly disable ACPI.
