Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86: Add "virt flags" in /proc/cpuinfo
Date
The hardware virtualization technology evolves very fast. But currently
it's hard to tell if your CPU support a certain kind of HW technology
without digging into the source code.

The patch add a new item under /proc/cpuinfo, named "virt flags". The "virt
flags" got the similar purpose as "flags". It is used to indicate what
HW virtulization features does this CPU supported, and it don't cover all
features but only the important ones.

Current implementation just cover Intel VMX side.
