Subject[patch 25/60] x86/paravirt: Provide a way to check for hypervisors
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

There is no generic way to test whether a kernel is running on a specific
hypervisor. But that's required to prevent the upcoming user address space
separation feature in certain guest modes.

Make the hypervisor type enum unconditionally available and provide a
helper function which allows to test for a specific type.
