Bug Description

The virtual-host saucy server smoke test failures observed starting from 20130720 on amd64 images. The failure is because lsmod does not list neither kvm_intel nor kvm_amd. This is occurring on a virtual host installation on a VM based on libvirt/kvm.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install a virtual host saucy server with (amd64) 20130720/21 image on a VM.
2. Run the following test:

==========================================

modprobe kvm_intel returns Unknown parameter 'nested' error in the kernel.log.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo modprobe kvm_intel
[sudo] password for ubuntu:
ERROR: could not insert 'kvm_intel': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

The following could be seen in the kernel.log
Jul 22 10:51:06 ubuntu kernel: [ 2650.702611] kvm_intel: Unknown parameter `nested'
