Indeed, you can do virtualization in software -- what's commonly
called para-virt these days.  This is what VMware was doing years ago.

I read quickly and made the mistaken assumption that if you were
asking if a given processor could do virtualization that you meant
full hardware virtualization.  Otherwise, the answer is that any
halfway modern system can do virtualization, even if it's only
para-virt.
