[HVM][SVM] Check if SVM is disabled by the BIOS before enabling it.

Newer BIOS implementations will be able to disable the SVM feature,
although an additional test of an MSR (VMCR 0xC0010114 bit 4) is
necessary (set equals disabled). Bit 4 of MSR 0xc0010114 returns 0
(SVM enabled) on machines with older BIOS' without the SVM disable
feature support.

2 ===========
4 The xen-bugtool command line application will collate the Xen dmesg output,
5 details of the hardware configuration of your machine, information about the
6 build of Xen that you are using, plus, if you allow it, various logs.
8 The information collated can either be posted to a Xen Bugzilla bug (this bug
9 must already exist in the system, and you must be a registered user there), or
10 it can be saved as a .tar.bz2 for sending or archiving.
12 The collated logs may contain private information, and if you are at all
13 worried about that, you should not use this tool, or you should explicitly
14 exclude those logs from the archive.
16 xen-bugtool is wholly interactive, so simply run it, and answer the questions.
