There are some differences:
- a zero value for ARCH_CAPABILITIES should be safe, while a zero value
for VMX capabilities doesn't really make sense. On the contrary, a
nonzero value for ARCH_CAPABILITIES is not safe across live migration.
- VMX doesn't support live migration; before adding that support we will
probably have Tom's patches to retrieve MSR capabilities.
