Subject[PATCH v2 6/7] locking/spinlocks, paravirt, hyperv: Correct the hv_nopvspin case
Date
With the boot parameter "hv_nopvspin" specified a Hyperv guest should
not make use of paravirt spinlocks, but behave as if running on bare
metal. This is not true, however, as the qspinlock code will fall back
to a test-and-set scheme when it is detecting a hypervisor.

In order to avoid this disable the virt_spin_lock_key.

Same change for XEN is already in Commit e6fd28eb3522
("locking/spinlocks, paravirt, xen: Correct the xen_nopvspin case")
