The only kernel change quoted was in the mail, a single line was changed in swiotlb.h
It should apply practically any recent kernel version.

The 3 links contained Xorg server code changes so they need to be applied
to the Xorg X-server sources and rebuilt.

I don't know. As far as I know, KVM is short for
Keyboard-Video-Mouse switcher and I only used an
external one that the computer had no control over.

If you meant KVM as the Linux kernel VM hypervisor, then no.
