Hi,

This is breaking KVM on my Phenom II X4 955.

When I start kvm I get this on the terminal:

kvm_create_vm: Device or resource busy
Could not initialize KVM, will disable KVM support

And in dmesg:
[ 67.980732] kvm: enabling virtualization on CPU0 failed


I commented out the if() and return, and I added 2 printk's there for
debugging, and now that's what I see in dmesg when I start kvm:
[ 3341.740112] efer is 3329
[ 3341.740113] efer is 3329
[ 3341.740117] efer is 3329
[ 3341.740119] EFER_SVME is 4096
[ 3341.740121] EFER_SVME is 4096
[ 3341.740124] EFER_SVME is 4096
[ 3341.740130] efer is 3329
[ 3341.740132] EFER_SVME is 4096

In hex the values are 0x1000 and 0x0d01

KVM has been working well on this machine before, and it still works
well after commenting that part out.

I am not sure what the value of this register is supposed to be, but are
you sure

if (efer & EFER_SVME)
is the right condition?
