Subject[PATCH 3.12-rc7] KVM: Fix modprobe failure for kvm_intel/kvm_amd
Date
The x86 specific kvm init creates a new conflicting
debugfs directory which causes modprobe issues
with kvm_intel and kvm_amd. For example,

sudo modprobe kvm_amd
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'kvm_amd': Bad address

The simplest fix is to just rename the directory. The following
KVM config options are set:

CONFIG_KVM_GUEST=y
CONFIG_KVM_DEBUG_FS=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_IRQCHIP=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_IRQ_ROUTING=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_EVENTFD=y
CONFIG_KVM_APIC_ARCHITECTURE=y
CONFIG_KVM_MMIO=y
CONFIG_KVM_ASYNC_PF=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_MSI=y
CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_CPU_RELAX_INTERCEPT=y
CONFIG_KVM=m
CONFIG_KVM_INTEL=m
CONFIG_KVM_AMD=m
# CONFIG_KVM_MMU_AUDIT is not set
CONFIG_KVM_DEVICE_ASSIGNMENT=y

There is likely a more elegant and complicated way to solve this
problem, but a simple rename for a debug feature seems best,
especially for an -rc7.
