+ r = kvm_hypercall1(KVM_PV_PCI_DEVICE, page_gfn);

Setup is done by:

+ if (!kvm_para_available()) {
+ printk(KERN_ERR "KVM paravirt support not available\n");
+ r = -ENODEV;
+ goto out_dereg;
+ }
I also couldn't get the has_feature to work properly.

See:

I had to change the hypercall address to 0f 01 d9 for it to get working.
