by the Linuxfoundation.

Thanks for having the version changes documented, but please put them after
the '---' line below and add another '---' before the diffstat. These
changes are not part of the final change log and if they are below then I
don't have to strip them manually.

Why does this select PARAVIRT? The current patches are not implementing
anything of the paravirt functionality. Which part of paravirtualization
are you going to provide?
