kvm misreports MCA, MCE, MTRR, and PAT as unsupported.  This causes Vista to
fail.  Since QEMU does not support any version of kvm that does not actually
support these features, it is safe to enable them unconditionally.

These features are needed by Vista x64 to boot.

Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>

Changes from v1:
- use CPUID_* instead of open coding constants
