I think it would be fair to point out that these patches have been objected to 
by the KVM folks quite extensively, on multiple technical grounds - as 
basically this tree forks the KVM driver space for which no valid technical 
reason could be offered by you in a 100+ mails long discussion.

(And yes, i've been Cc:-ed to much of that thread.)

The result will IMO be pain for users because now we'll have two frameworks, 
tooling incompatibilities, etc. etc.

I've extended the Cc: for the KVM folks to have a chance to reply. Please try 
_much_ harder to work with the KVM folks instead of ignoring their feedback 
and de-facto forking their project. (and not mentioning any of this in your 
pull request) We should unify, not fracture.
