The current Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) software does not recognize the existence of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. In order to make the KVM recognize the coprocessors, we provide patches under the GPL license, to rebuild the kernel and qemu-kvm packages. The patches provided here are used for Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6.2 (RHEL* 6.2).
Attached is a step-by-step procedure on how to make KVM on RHEL* 6.2 recognize Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, including a zip file of the patches.
