Yes, sorry for being a bit too concise. :)

That's a separate question, MSR_IA32_VMX_BASIC[55]=0 basically means
that the "true" capabilities are the same as the "default" capabilities.
If userspace wanted to set it that way, KVM right now would not hide
the "true" capability MSR, but on the other hand the nested hypervisor
should not even notice the difference.
