[PATCH 1/9] Enable pvclock flags in vcpu_time_info structure
This patch removes one padding byte and transform it into a flags field. New versions of guests using pvclock will query these flags upon each read. Flags, however, will only be interpreted when the guest decides to. It uses the pvclock_valid_flags function to signal that a specific set of flags should be taken ... 11 May 2010 13:24
[PATCH] HID:magicmouse: This fixes a connection problem with the magicmouse.
With the latest HEAD, I've noticed that I needed to add: HIDRAW=y in order for my apple magicmouse to connect. After receiving some posts, it seems this it not the case(HIDRAW just relays HID events to userspace). The bisect results of this issue resulted in commit: HID:magicmouse: fix oops after device removal.... 11 May 2010 13:24
[PATCH 5/9] export paravirtual cpuid flags in KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID
Right now, we were using individual KVM_CAP entities to communicate userspace about which cpuids we support. This is suboptimal, since it generates a delay between the feature arriving in the host, and being available at the guest. A much better mechanism is to list para features in KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID. This... 11 May 2010 13:24
[PATCH 3/9] change msr numbers for kvmclock
Avi pointed out a while ago that those MSRs falls into the pentium PMU range. So the idea here is to add new ones, and after a while, deprecate the old ones.

[PATCH 8/9] Tell the guest we'll warn it about tsc stability
This patch puts up the flag that tells the guest that we'll warn it about the tsc being trustworthy or not.

PPC: introduce __set_bit() like function for bitmaps in user space
