Looks good, I prepared a tag "for-riscv" at 
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm.git.  Palmer can pull it and 
you can use it to send me a pull request.

I look forward to the test support. :)  Would be nice to have selftest 
support already in 5.16, since there are a few arch-independent 
selftests that cover the hairy parts of the MMU.
