+ operating systems inside virtual machines (guests).
+ This option alone does not add any kernel code.

+ ---help---
+ Support hosting fully virtualized guest machines using hardware
+ virtualization extensions. You will need a fairly recent
+ processor equipped with virtualization extensions. You will also
+ need to select one or more of the processor modules below.
+
+ This module provides access to the hardware capabilities through
+ a character device node named /dev/kvm.
+
+ To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module
+ will be called kvm.
+
+ If unsure, say N.
