KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution
for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions
(Intel VT or AMD-V).

KVM consists of a loadable kernel module, 'kvm.ko', that provides the
core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module,
'kvm-intel.ko' or 'kvm-amd.ko'.  This package builds new 'kvm' modules
and headers for older kernels.  The new 'kvm' modules do not overwrite
the Slackware pre-built 'kvm' modules.
