[fedora-virt] State of KVM paravirtualization

 I'm trying to understand where KVM stands regarding
paravirtualization. I've seen the patches from 2007 by Ingo Molnar
(http://people.redhat.com/mingo/kvm-paravirt-patches/) but couldn't
find anything newer. Are they integrated to the mainstream kernel?

 The reason I'm looking at that is because I've a server at home which
doesn't have hardware-assisted virtualization support and running qemu
in full virtualization mode is a bit slow. I've tried Xen and it sure
is fast but I would like to experiment with KVM.

Thank you,
