this is the third version of the patches for KVM to support 1GB pages. Changes
to the last version include:

- changed reporting of 1GB page support to userspace to use
- added support for 1GB pages to the software page walker code too

This code still only can make use of 1GB pages with nested paging enabled. I
will give the shadow paging code another debug round soon. Please comment or
consider to apply these patches.

Can you describe how the code fails with shadow paging?

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
