Separate patch.

Use symbolic name, please.

Where did this come from?

Overflow, you're reading 12 bytes from a 10-byte variable.

Indentation...

Also, have to initialize all fields, since the real cpu won't initialize
them for you.

Sidenote: the real cpu may be a kvm vcpu, so it may in fact support
those features.

The kvm cpuid does not follow the limit thing.

To avoid confusion, please write Documentation/kvm/cpuid.txt based on
the current qemu-kvm code, and implement this patch according to the
documentation.
