Ok, below are 2 patches that I will queue up in my tree.

Can you test them to verify that they work properly?

thanks,

This allows the HV core to be properly found and autoloaded
by the system tools.

It uses the Microsoft virtual VGA device to trigger this.

The HV core mucks around with specific irqs and other low-level stuff
and takes forever to determine that it really shouldn't be running on a
machine.  So instead, trigger off of the DMI system information and
error out much sooner.  This also allows the module loading tools to
recognize that this code should be loaded on this type of system.
