Is doing like the others a sufficient good reason?
What if the first who did this did not really think about it?

When an administrator configure the kernel what does he think?

- I want to have AP through AP_VFIO in my guests
and he get implicitly VFIO
or
- I want to have VFIO
and he has to explicitly add AP_VFIO too

It seems to me that the first is much more user friendly.

Please tell me if I missed something. dependencies? collateral damages?
my logic is wrong?

Regards,

Pierre
