Getting Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM) to Work with 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).
