CPU model features:
1. The KVM_S390_VM_CPU_FEAT_AP CPU model feature indicates that
AP facilities are installed. This feature will be enabled by
the kernel only if the AP facilities are installed on the linux
host. This feature must be turned on from userspace to access
AP devices from the KVM guest. The QEMU command line to turn

This feature will be supported for zEC12 and newer CPU models.
The feature will not be supported for older models due to
I think we (me, Halil and Pierre) agreed that this should not be a

on/off dynamically. (CPU_FEAT cannot be changed after CPUs have been
Can you discuss that with Halil + Pierre?
I will do that.
