Kvm supports hvm on machines with virt extensions only. There is no

That's true but just for being 100% accurate, do know that from kvm POV
there is no difference between HVM and paravirt, they are combined.
KVM guests have paravirt clock (kvmclock), we had paravirt mmu verbs
(now the hardware do much better) and we have paravirt irq controller
(x2apic). Again, kvm does not make any distinction for the above.
