Thanks for your info, I have read through Julien's patchset in mailing list.
This patch is a improvement from Wei Huang's patch using my GTDT driver,
because his approach is getting info from DTB or ACPI directly.

But It seems Wei Huang is helping Julien on his patchset and trying to
provide Tested-by,
So I will delete these two patches(about kvm), and test Julien's patch also.
