I just posted https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/3/22/94. Please let me know
if that looks better.
And this patch should now become something like
---
diff --git a/arch/x86/Kconfig b/arch/x86/Kconfig

--- a/arch/x86/Kconfig

---help---
Paravirtualized spinlocks allow a pvops backend to replace the
spinlock implementation with something virtualization-friendly
