KVM doesn't work at all unless you have these extensions.  However you
can still happen to run the /usr/bin/qemu-kvm on these machines - it's
just that it falls back to using QEMU (ie. pure software)
virtualization.

All new Intel & AMD processors support this anyway.  The situation is
similar to 3D accelerated graphics cards circa 1996 -- not everyone's
got one now, but within a few years even your mobile phone will have
it.  (Or something like that anyway :-)

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
