The process is similar, but there's a different set of state to be migrated.  
Also, PV guests participate more actively in the migration than FV guests do.

I'm not sure if FV live migration is in mainline yet.  I'd imagine they're 
pretty similar from the user's point of view.

Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
