Subject[RFC PATCH 2/7] KVM: Track the pid of the VM process
Date
Userspace tools such as perf can be used to profile individual
processes.

Track the PID of the virtual machine process to match profiling requests
targeted at it. This can be used to take appropriate action to enable
the requested profiling operations for the VMs of interest.
