Subject[PATCH] Fix emergency_restart (sysrq-b) with kvm loaded on Intel hosts
Date
Enabling Intel VT has the curious side effect whereby the INIT signal is
blocked. Rather than comment on the wisdom of this side effect, this patch
adds an emergency restart reboot notifier, and modifies the kvm reboot
notifier to disable VT on emergency reboot.
