Yes. This is the approach I'm taking here. They can be easily moved in
the future if there is a need.

There is only one usage of this in this whole series so I didn't bother
capturing. I would also like to clean up ms_hyperv_info's fields a bit.

Given there are quite some patches pending which change ms_hyperv_info
struct, I would like to avoid creating more conflicts than necessary.

My plan is to implement my idea from the thread "Field names inside
ms_hyperv_info" once all patches that touch ms_hyperv_info are merged.

Wei.
