[Bug 1194632] Re: kvm-ok Support for ARM Architecture is Missing


I've just uploaded a distro patch to ppa:racb/experimental for testing.
In particular, I'm concerned to make sure that this doesn't accidentally
break Intel. For Saucy I think we'll need an FFe whether it gets merged
upstream or not, so I guess we need to test anyway.

Kees or Dustin: if it's not worth or we don't get this merged upstream
and a new release soon, any objections to a distro patch in the
meantime? Now that we finally have A-15s around and our kernel supports
ARM KVM, it'd be great to get this in before release so all our tooling
