I'm trying to update the kernel on a Hyper-V guest (32bit) from 3.8.13 to 3.12.21 but menuconfig doesn't seem to have the Hyper-V drivers listed. There is a "Device Drivers > Microsoft Hyper-V guest support" menu but it's empty. I found this post:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7571636.html

It says to look in:
Processor type and features > Linux guest support

..but that menu is empty also.

What's the trick?

Thanks! :D

As a goof, I just booted the system with the latest live CD ISO and I see that the Hyper-V drivers didn't get loaded by default (they used to) and aren't present in /lib/modules. I also booted the 64 bit version of the live CD and that one has the modules. It appears that 32bit Hyper-V guests are no longer supported by Gentoo. Is that the case?
