KVM virtualization fix on Gentoo 2008.0 stable version

A recent kvm / kernel update breaks kvm virtualization on my gentoo 2008.0 stable version machine.
The situation is similar to this guy:

There is a bug in 2.6.25 kernel about HLT instruction which doesn't work well under newer kvm code, which is fixed in 2.6.26.1, but gentoo's kernel is just too old for that, after a week of search, I found the solution is just a line of code change.
