Cornelia Huck - Sept. 4, 2012, 3:13 p.m.
Running under a kvm host does not necessarily imply the presence of
a page mapped above the main memory with the virtio information;
however, the code includes a hard coded access to that page.

Instead, check for the presence of the page and exit gracefully
before we hit an addressing exception if it does not exist.

Changes v1->v2:

- check for the presence of the patch with lura
- reorder init sequence
- comments
