We can't assume permissions are correct. One of the core issues we hit
was that the udev rule which sets the permissions has been in the QEMU
RPM historically. So you can have the kernel module loaded automatically
by systemd when it detects VMX, but its permissions will be 0600 until
the qemu-kvm RPM is installed and udev is triggered to fix the permissions
to 0666.
