Yes that's the big difference. Near all paravirt ops are concentrated
on the core kernel, but this one affects lots of people.

And why "but"? -- modules are as important as the core kernel. They're
not second citizens.
It's not being second class; simply few modules are loaded at runtime,
so most of the code impact is on disk. The in-code impact is small. If
paravirt i/o insns are worthwhile, I don't think code size is an issue.
