[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 2/2] paravirt, xen: correct xen_nopvspin case

With the boot parameter "xen_nopvspin" specified a Xen guest should not
make use of paravirt spinlocks, but behave as if running on bare
metal. This is not true, however, as the qspinlock code will fall back
to a test-and-set scheme when it is detecting a hypervisor.

In order to avoid this disable the virt_spin_lock_key.
