KVM cpuid functions are:
function: KVM_CPUID_SIGNATURE (0x40000000)
-returns : eax = 0,
+returns : eax = 0x40000001,
ebx = 0x4b4d564b,
ecx = 0x564b4d56,
edx = 0x4d.
Note that this value in ebx, ecx and edx corresponds to the string "KVMKVMKVM".
+The value in eax corresponds to the maximum cpuid function present in this leaf,
+and will be updated if more functions are added in the future.
+Note also that old hosts set eax value to 0x0. This should
+be interpreted as if the value was 0x40000001.
This function queries the presence of KVM cpuid leafs.
