This fails to compile for Book E configs:

CC arch/powerpc/kvm/e500.o
/home/paulus/kernel/kvm/arch/powerpc/kvm/e500.c: In function ‘kvmppc_core_vcpu_create_e500’:
/home/paulus/kernel/kvm/arch/powerpc/kvm/e500.c:464:9: error: return makes integer from pointer without a cast [-Werror=int-conversion]
return vcpu;
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
make[3]: *** [/home/paulus/kernel/kvm/scripts/ arch/powerpc/kvm/e500.o] Error 1

There is a "return vcpu" statement in kvmppc_core_vcpu_create_e500(),
and another in kvmppc_core_vcpu_create_e500mc(), which both need to be
changed to "return 0".

(By the way, I do appreciate you fixing the PPC code, even if there
are some errors.)
