Subject[PATCH 10/40] KVM: SVM: Allow setting the SVME bit
Date
From: Alexander Graf <agraf@suse.de>

Normally setting the SVME bit in EFER is not allowed, as we did
not support SVM. Not since we do, we should also allow enabling
SVM mode.

v2 comes as last patch, so we don't enable half-ready code
v4 introduces a module option to enable SVM
v6 warns that nesting is enabled
