Bug Description

The Hyper-V hypervisor communicates with the guest OS via the hv_kvp kernel module. This in turn communicates with a userspace daemon which is responsible to storing various pieces of configuration information and responding to requests for OS specific version information.

The hv_hvp_daemon is tightly coupled with the kernel hv_kvp driver and shipped with the kernel source. It therefore makes sense to include this daemon with the other version locked programs, in the linux-tools package.
