I'm using a newer i5400XT board with E5335 CPUs on one workstation, and
E5440 on the other.

$ echo CPU: $(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep Xeon | uniq), CPU VT ext: $(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -o vmx | wc -l) cores.
CPU: model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5335 @ 2.00GHz, CPU VT ext: 8 cores.

$ echo CPU: $(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep Xeon | uniq), CPU VT ext: $(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -o vmx | wc -l) cores.
CPU: model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5440 @ 2.83GHz, CPU VT ext: 8 cores.

qemu-kvm is working just fine on both.
Must likely your BIOS fails to detect/enable the VT extension on your
54xx CPUs.

Have you looked for an updated BIOS in tyan.com?
