This passed 'make check', so I'm half-inclined to give ACK.  But what
hardware were you testing on?  Was it one that allows nested virt?  None
of my ready-access machines allow nested virt, so I'm having a hard time
reproducing the scenario, and I wonder if this is a case where older
qemu was conditionally exposing the -help output based on what hardware
it was running on, and where your patch now causes a regression on
hardware that allows nesting.  If so, then we still need some way to set
the bit when appropriate - did qemu give us a counterpart QMP query-*
command that we can use to determine when nested virt is supported by
qemu, if we can't blindly assume it is always supported in 1.2.0+?
