I've started building a linux kernel like over a week ago....
So that is with my patches on the "basic" bhyve-svm.

I've just completed merging and patching with Anish patches...
ONce that seems to run for my freebsd vm's, I'll start merging my 
patches. And hope that it still works.
And best would be that the vlapic stuff gives a extra bit of speed, 
because we're not quite there yet.

I'll let you know how I fare
