Subject[PATCH v8 0/5] Add a unified parameter "nopvspin"
Date
There are cases folks want to disable spinlock optimization for
debug/test purpose. Xen and hyperv already have parameters "xen_nopvspin"
and "hv_nopvspin" to support that, but kvm doesn't.

The first patch adds that feature to KVM guest with "nopvspin".

For compatibility reason original parameters "xen_nopvspin" and
"hv_nopvspin" are retained and marked obsolete.

PATCH2: use 'kvm-guest' instead of 'kvm_guest' [Sean Christopherson]

PATCH3: fold 'if' statement,add comments on virt_spin_lock_key,

v4:

defined it as __initdata, changed print message,
updated patch description [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH2: remove Suggested-by, use "kvm-guest:" prefix [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH3: make variable nopvsin and xen_pvspin coexist
