Subject[061/197] KVM: x86: disable paravirt mmu reporting
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Marcelo Tosatti <mtosatti@redhat.com>

commit a68a6a7282373bedba8a2ed751b6384edb983a64 upstream

Disable paravirt MMU capability reporting, so that new (or rebooted)
guests switch to native operation.

Paravirt MMU is a burden to maintain and does not bring significant
advantages compared to shadow anymore.
