I'm not sure how many people actually use paravirt these days,
but the reason Fedora has it enabled still at least is probably
because..

config KVM_GUEST
bool "KVM Guest support (including kvmclock)"
depends on PARAVIRT

But tbh I've not looked at this stuff since it first got merged.
Will a full-virt system kvm boot a guest without KVM_GUEST enabled ?
(ie, is this just an optimisation for the paravirt case?)

I'm not a heavy virt user, so I don't even remember how a lot of
this stuff is supposed to work.
