I think you've got the branches the wrong way around here; nobody runs a
VM so this branch will get you out without a load.

Only if you're one of those daft people running a VM, are you interested
in any of the other conditions that are required.

Also, I think both pebs_active and pebs_vmx can he a static_branch, but
that can be done later I suppose.
