There are users out there that want kexec/kdump support.  I think we
should remove this patch from the series, replace it with a temporary
Kconfig conditional that allows only one of KVM or kexec to be enabled,
and merge kexec and kdump support in for 4.5.  This will satisfy users
who need kexec but not KVM, like kexec based bootloaders.  Once this
KVM hot plug patch is fixed we then merge it, either for 4.5 or 4.6,
depending on the timing.

I'll prepare and post a v13 series that does the above.
