Not at all, I said:
"the whole point of KVM is that it uses the hardware support
built into recent AMD and Intel chips"
which is true. Just because Ingo adds support for paravirualisation to
KVM doesn't really change that. See:
"KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization
solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization
extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V)."

Yes, you are right.
