Allen points out that the EPT capability variable that is checked
doesn't get initialized until VMX is set up, which right now happens
_after_ the IOMMU is configured.

Allen, is there any reason that the call to iommu_enable() shouldn't be
moved to after do_presmp_initcalls()?  If so, then I guess we should
open-code the hardware capability check in the vtD init code.
