Sure, I've opted out KVM and removed all KVM patches from this series:

c1fac4516a61d kvm: vmx: Limit guest PMCs to those supported on the host
75b118586ec81 kvm: x86, powerpc: do not allow clearing largepages debugfs entry
c89fc5c082aa6 KVM: x86: Expose XSAVEERPTR to the guest
1eec6b4068e2e kvm: x86: Use AMD CPUID semantics for AMD vCPUs
5c56e6ba0afc8 kvm: x86: Improve emulation of CPUID leaves 0BH and 1FH
94a3c6f010bd2 kvm: x86: Fix a spurious -E2BIG in __do_cpuid_func
79a7ad6330bc5 KVM: arm/arm64: vgic: Use the appropriate TRACE_INCLUDE_PATH
