Hi list, 

I've read about recent efforts to push pv-on-hvm drivers to Linux mainline 
and I'm curious to know the cause for this. What's the advantage over using 
pv_ops directly and booting the kernel paravirtualized?
Are there plans to move Linux domUs closer to the KVM way (from an 
architectural point of view)?

Hope you can help.
