Could you do an audit for other pvops calls that have no users?  If

I can do that - but I don't want to be hasty here. There is a bit of
danger here - for example the read_pmc (or read_tsc) is not in use right
now. But it might be when one starts looking at making perf be able to
analyze the hypervisor (hand-waving the implementation details). So while
removing read_pmc now sounds good, it might be needed in the future.

We do not keep a pvop around just because it "might be needed in the future". That's just crazy.
