Hi,

Please port the patch to latest upstream and send it as a proper patch
to this mailing list. (otherwise you won't get feedback on it WHP)

If you want some initial comment if this makes sense at all in the
context of KVM and can be implemented, you can send the patch itself as
RFC (based on an older kernel version).

Thanks!
