I noticed this too, but I thought it was mitigated by being under
EFER_LMA. Unfortunately, kvm_set_efer doesn't check
guest_cpuid_has_longmode, so I guess you do have to test leaf 0x80000000
first. Alternatively:

1) kvm_cpuid could return false if it's falling back to
check_cpuid_limit, and emulator_get_cpuid can then be changed to return bool

2) kvm_cpuid and emulator_get_cpuid could gain a new argument to disable
the check_cpuid_limit fallback.

Yu, would you like to implement the latter?

Paolo
