[PATCH 0/3] Hyper-V KVP daemon

The Hyper-V hypervisor communicates with the guest OS via the hv_kvp
kernel module.  This in turn communicates with a userspace daemon which
is responsible to storing various pieces of configuration information
and responding to requests for OS specific version information.

The hv_hvp_daemon is tightly coupled with the kernel hv_kvp driver
and shipped with the kernel source.  It therefore makes sense
to include this daemon with the other version locked programs, in
the linux-tools package.

Following this email are three patches to add this daemon to the
linux-tools and linux-tools-common packages.  The first adds basic build
infrastructure, the second adds a skeletal manual page, and the last adds
the tool to the appropriate build phases.

Proposing for Precise.
