Paolo Bonzini sent in the first pull request this morning for KVM (Kernel-Based Virtual Machine) changes for Linux 4.5.

Highlights include s390 support for runtime instrumentation within guests, support for up to 248 virtual CPUs on s390, ARM/ARM64 improvements, x86 MMU clean-ups, and KVM x86 support for more Microsoft Hyper-V features. It's great to see Microsoft and others continuing to invest in Hyper-V improvements for Linux.

More details on the KVM changes for the Linux 4.5 merge window can be found via this pull request.
