    Anybody feeling like taking one of their testing Linux VM's to give this a spin on a recent kernel?

    All posted advice may not be all that accurate. As always, test it in a lab before you try my advice! Best of all, the documentation is your friend.

    If need

    driver for the Hyper-V Synthetic Video

    try this


    The mm-of-the-moment snapshot

    This mmotm tree contains the following patches against 3.9-rc8:

    linux-next.patch ( 37Mb)

    . . .



    This is the driver for the Hyper-V Synthetic Video, which supports screen
    resolution up to Full HD 1920×1080 on Windows Server 2012 host, and
    1600×1200 on Windows Server 2008 R2 or earlier. It also solves the double
    mouse cursor issue of the emulated video mode.





    IMHO, VSS support and improvement in hv_balloon is more usefull:

    Char / Misc driver update for 3.10-rc1

    Here’s the big char / misc driver update for 3.10-rc1

    A number of various driver updates, the majority being new functionality
    in the MEI driver subsystem (it’s now a subsystem, it started out just a
    single driver), extcon updates, memory updates, hyper-v updates, and a
    bunch of other small stuff that doesn’t fit in any other tree.

    All of these have been in linux-next for a while
