Which makes me start suspecting that the guest might be deriving
its information on VMX being available from something other than
CPUID. Of course we ought to confirm that we don't unintentionally
return the VMX flag set (and that the config file doesn't override it
in this way - I think we shouldn't be suppressing user overrides
here, but I didn't go check whether we do).
