Re: m2npv-vm won't boot newer kernels.
I found the "acpi_skip_timer_override" setting in:
./arch/x86_64/kernel/early-quirks.c and set it to "0" The result was:
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init! At least the kernel booted past the:
"io scheduler cfq registered" where it's been stalling for the last 3 or 4 months.
Still, any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
