Hello all,
I had noticed that there is a mrecurial repository for a unified interface
for Vt-x and AMD svm in:

 HVM stands for "Hardware virtual machine", and it is an
 interface that abstracts away from the x86/x86_64 CPU specifics.

 Is there intention that this will be integrated to the main
 tree ? there are some differences between svm and vt-x ; some are
 in terminology, but some are real ones (like the fact the svm has
 tagged TLB and uses ASID while vt-x does not).

 Does anybody knows more on this HVM initiative and shed some light on it?
