I'd actually prefer if you all do a trivial conversion to
kvm_init_usercopy to begin with.  In fact, we could just change the
default from "0, 0" to "0, sizeof (kvm_arch_vcpu)" in kvm_init.  Any
other change can be applied after the patches are merged to Linus's
tree, especially with KVM Forum and the merge window both coming soon.

I'll send a v2 myself later this week.

Thanks all,

Paolo
