[Qemu-devel] [PATCHv4 0/4] migrate PV EOI MSR

It turns out PV EOI gets disabled after migration -
until next guest reset.
This is because we are missing code to actually migrate it.
This patch fixes it up: it applies cleanly to qemu.git
as well as qemu-kvm.git, so I think it's cleaner
to apply it in qemu.git to keep diff to minimum.

Note: there's talk about adding infrastructure for
CPUID whitelisting which thinkably could be used
for migration compat support. I am guessing this won't be
1.2 material - when it's ready we can easily replace
a simple flag that this patchset adds with something else.

So this just adds minimal code to avoid regressing
cross-version migration.

Note: there's a kernel bug in linux 3.6-rc3 - apply
my patch 'kvm: fix KVM_GET_MSR for PV EOI' in order to
use this patchset on it.

Needed for 1.2.

Changes from v2 and v3:
    Multiple tweaks in variable name to confirm to strict C99 (Blue Swirl)
Changes from v1:
    Update all headers from 3.6-rc3 to keep them in sync (Jan)
    Disable cpuid flag for qemu 1.2 and older (Orit)

Michael S. Tsirkin (4):
  linux-headers: update to 3.6-rc3
  pc: refactor compat code
  cpuid: disable pv eoi for 1.1 and older compat types
  kvm: get/set PV EOI MSR
