I have not looked into that in detail ... there is dependency in the
kernel configuration so that KVM will not show up as an option if LPAE is
not set. That was/is the only reason why I have enabled LPAE.
BTW, I did further checks .. and indeed enabling LPAE is the
trouble-maker. I will try to do some tests by breaking the config
dependency between LPAE and KVM.
I will keep the list posted.
Virt on ARM requires LPAE in order to function; virt uses the address translation
bits in LPAE for the address translation between the guest and host.
