Absolutely not, this rename was just about a badly-named directory. I
totally agree with the above reorganization. Does the userspace API
cover only syscall or perhaps sysfs interfaces? There are more API
files (amd-memory-encryption.txt, cpuid.txt, halt-polling.txt msr.txt,
ppc-pv.txt, s390-diag.txt) but, with the exception of
amd-memory-encryption.txt and halt-polling.txt, they cover the
emulated-hardware interfaces that KVM provides to virtual machines.
