On the face of it, this looks OK, but I haven't tried to run the
resulting kernel. I'm not opposed to taking this patch *if* there
is an agreement across architectures to take the series (I value
consistency over the janitorial exercise).

Another thing is that this is going to conflict with the set of
patches that move the KVM/arm code back where it belongs 
(arch/arm64/kvm),
so I'd probably cherry-pick that one directly.

Thanks,

         M.
