Subject: [PATCH 1/2] KVM: VMX: Don't advertise EPT switching if EPT itself is not exposed

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpeng.li@...mail.com>

EPT switching is advertised unconditionally since it is emulated, however, it can 
be treated as an extended feature for EPT, it should be not advertised if EPT itself
is not exposed. This patch fixes it.
