Looking at the mail thread, I think TM should be currently disabled for
both, KVM-PR and TCG, i.e. only enabled for KVM-HV. The TM support in
TCG is just fake, since TBEGIN always fails.
Once we've got proper TM support in TCG, this can be easily changed
within QEMU. And once we've got TM support in KVM-PR, I think we should
also introduce a capability flag to KVM which can be used to inform QEMU
about this.

So I think Anton's patch currently just lacks the check for TCG.
Anton, if you've got some spare minutes, could you maybe send an updated
version of that patch?
