I never rebase kvm.git master, so I pulled the x86 changes and applied 
all.  Ingo, this will mean you have to push x86 before kvm.git, but as 
you're generally faster than me there shouldn't be a problem.

Eduardo, please check the merge (there was a small conflict in reboot.c 
which I fixed) once I push it.  Also, when generating patches that move 
files, use the -M switch: this makes it easier to review, and also 
handles files that change better.

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
