Hi, Sean, 
I consulted the CET arch for the feature enabling in guest, actually, it
can be enabled independent to host CET feature, i.e., guest CET feature
can work even without host CET feature off, I did experiments, it's
proved true. So, in next version, I'll remove host CET dependencies to
make the KVM code look much cleaner. Thanks for your comments.
