I meant rename the existing arch-specific struct kvm_{vcpu,vm}_stat to
kvm_{vcpu,vm}_stat_arch and rename struct kvm_{vcpu,vm}_stat_common to

So in  include/linux/kvm_types.h you'd have:

struct kvm_vm_stat {
  ulong remote_tlb_flush;
  struct kvm_vm_stat_arch arch;

struct kvm_vcpu_stat {
  u64 halt_successful_poll;
  u64 halt_attempted_poll;
  u64 halt_poll_invalid;
  u64 halt_wakeup;
  u64 halt_poll_success_ns;
  u64 halt_poll_fail_ns;
  struct kvm_vcpu_stat_arch arch;

And in arch/x86/include/asm/kvm_host.h you'd have:

struct kvm_vm_stat_arch {
  ulong mmu_shadow_zapped;

struct kvm_vcpu_stat_arch {
  u64 pf_fixed;
  u64 pf_guest;
  u64 tlb_flush;

You still have the same benefits of having an arch-neutral place to
store stats but the struct layout more closely resembles struct
kvm_vcpu and struct kvm.
