Not an objection, but shouldn't this and subsequent 078 "KVM: x86: Move
TSC reset out of vmcb_init" patches be applied to 2.6.32 too? The same
problem exists in 2.6.32, and the two patches allows an smp linux guest
to boot in there, or such a guest just hangs at boot. (078 patch needs
to be adjusted a bit for 2.6.32, since the code there is a bit different
and it does not apply correctly; but the change is trivial).
