I fixed indentation while there. (Look at the file, not the diff to see
what I mean).

For !CONFIG_KVM_GUEST it would not be a variable. We may want to change it
to static branch or something in the future.

I think we would need to remember it anyway. Accessing MSR is somewhat
expensive. But, okay, I can rework it MSR if needed.

Note, that we can avoid the enabling algother, if we modify BIOS to deal
with private/shared memory. Currently BIOS get system crash if we enable
the feature from time zero.

The same justification :)
