I am enclosing a patch that implements the KVP (Key Value Pair) functionality for Linux guests on HyperV. This functionality allows Microsoft Management stack to query information from the guest. This functionality is implemented in two parts: (a) A kernel component that communicates with the host and (b) A user level daemon that implements data gathering. The attached patch (kvp.patch) implements the kernel component. I am also attaching the code for the user-level daemon (kvp_daemon.c)  for reference.
