Subject: [PATCH 3/8] SVM: add module parameter to disable Nested Paging
Date: Thu,  7 Feb 2008 13:47:40 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1202388465-8657-4-git-send-email-joerg.roedel@amd.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1202388465-8657-1-git-send-email-joerg.roedel@amd.com>

To disable the use of the Nested Paging feature even if it is available in
hardware this patch adds a module parameter. Nested Paging can be disabled by
passing npt=0 to the kvm_amd module.
