The plan is such
1. pvpanic will not be a default device (qemu), so unless you will add "-device pvpanic" in the qemu command line, it will not show up.
2. No driver is planned for 6.5. Actually, we will have a driver, but we do not plan to officially ship it.


Comment 8 Mike Cao 2013-08-14 13:53:15 UTC
Granted QA_ACK 
QE will run WHQL test once the build has born out .

Comment 17 lijin 2015-06-09 09:23:47 UTC
with build 103,we can install pvpanic driver correctly and pvpanic whql jobs all passed.

So this issue has been fixed,change status to verified.
