[PATCH -v2 2/2] x86: Make Linux guest support optional

Borislav Petkov bp at alien8.de
Fri Jan 25 17:59:37 UTC 2013


From: Borislav Petkov <bp at suse.de>

Put all config options needed to run Linux as a guest behind a
CONFIG_HYPERVISOR_GUEST menu so that they don't get built-in by
default but selected by the user. Also, move x86_hyper into an
unconditionally-built compilation unit because it is exported with the
non-GPL flavour and we can't know whatever uses it on the outside.

Then, make sure x86 hypervisor platform descriptor is present and do a
proper check whether we're running on a vmware hypervisor by looking at
its name before continuing with the initialization further.

While at it, adjust text to changes, remove redundant select.
