Description Eduardo Habkost 2009-07-10 18:10:48 EDT
In order to support suspend-to-disk and suspend-to-RAM while using KVM, additions are needed on the kernel CPU hotplug support. This patch in special: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/24/108

From the patch description:

"KVM wants a notification when a cpu is about to die, so it can disable
hardware extensions, but at a time when user processes cannot be scheduled
on the cpu, so it doesn't try to use virtualization extensions after they
have been disabled."
