Well, yea) The assumption here is that MSR_IA32_VMX_MISC's value doesn't
change underneath KVM, caching doesn't change anything then. It is, of
course, possible that when KVM runs as a nested hypervisor on top of
something else, it will observe different values. I truly hope this is
purely imaginary :-)
