Subject: [PATCH] hv: vmbus_drv: detect hyperv through x86_hyper
Date: Fri, 31 Aug 2012 13:32:44 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1346391164-34001-1-git-send-email-jasowang@redhat.com> (raw)

There are two reasons we need to use x86_hyper instead of
query_hypervisor_presence():

- Not only hyperv but also other hypervisors such as kvm would set
  X86_FEATURE_HYTPERVISOR, so query_hypervisor_presence() will return true even
  in kvm. This may cause extra delay of 5 seconds before failing the probing in
  kvm guest.
- The hypervisor has been detected in init_hypervisor(), so no need to do the
  work again.
