Dear linux developers,
since my upgrade from linux 4.11 to linux 4.12 the "kvm_intel" module does not
load correctly anymore. "Modprobing" the kernel module gives an Input/Output
error. It seems to be related to the CPU architecture and (to my knowledge)
affects Conroe CPUs. I did a bisect and found the following commit as the

KVM: VMX: require virtual NMI support
Virtual NMIs are only missing in Prescott and Yonah chips. Both are
for virtualization usage---Yonah is 32-bit only even---so drop vNMI

Since the commit message only mentions Prescott and Yonah chips, I wanted to
ask whether this commit is also intended to affect Conroe CPUs (which are
probably still a bit more widespread). Do you see a solution to bring back
support for Conroe chips?
Thank you for your hard work on the kernel!
