External hypervisors, like Jailhouse, need this address when they are
deactivated, in order to restore original state.

While I would not dislike to have patch-free access in Jailhouse, I'm 
not sure if an out-of-tree use case justifies this an export.

Also, this lacks the arm equivalent to be complete.

arm and arm64 has different maintainers. If this arm64 is acceptable, I'll create
arm patch and send out.

Thanks,
Peng.

In jailhouse, we call it:

driver/main.c:extern unsigned int __hyp_stub_vectors[];

_GPL?

I wrote, with the same motivation, almost the same patch a while ago:

https://github.com/siemens/linux/commit/15b46bf77bdb5c6b1889f729efc3bf424ddfad9c

Back then, I had to import asm-generic/export.h. Is it now indirectly
included?

Thanks
  Ralf

NAK.

There is no in-tree users of this. If you're using jailhouse, you're
already patching your kernel, and you can carry this. Mainline doesn't
need this at all.

         M.
