Well, VMCS is also a structure in memory, isn't it? It's just that we
don't have a 'clean field' concept for it and we can't use normal memory
accesses.

Do I understand correctly that we can just look at CPUID.0x40000000.EAX
and in case it is >= 0x4000000A we can read HYPERV_CPUID_NESTED_FEATURES
leaf? I'd suggest we do that intead then.
