Description Will Woods 2012-01-27 16:35:39 EST
/etc/sysconfig/modules/kvm.modules runs 'grep' twice to see if the CPU supports VMX or SVM. This can be handled without calling out to external programs, like so:


case "$(</proc/cpuinfo)" in
    *vmx*) vmx=1 ;;
    *svm*) svm=1 ;;

[ "$vmx" ] && modprobe -b kvm-intel >/dev/null 2>&1
[ "$svm" ] && modprobe -b kvm-amd >/dev/null 2>&1
[ "$vmx" -o "$svm" ] && modprobe -b virtio-net >/dev/null 2>&1

Sure, it's minor, but it's faster and functionally equivalent. Can't hurt, right?

Thanks, it might be minor, but it is appreciated.  This will make the next releases.
