From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

The missing functionality was added ~3 years ago with the Linux commit

  46896c73c1a4 ("KVM: svm: add support for RDTSCP")

so reenable RDTSCP support on those CPU models.

Opteron_G2 - being family 15, model 6, doesn't have RDTSCP support
(the real hardware doesn't have it. K8 got RDTSCP support with the NPT
models, i.e., models >= 0x40).

Document the host's minimum required kernel version, while at it.

+@section KVM kernel module
+
+On x86_64 hosts, the default set of CPU features enabled by the KVM accelerator
+require the host to be running Linux v4.5 or newer.
+
+The OpteronG[345] CPU models require KVM support for RDTSCP, which was
+added with Linux 4.5 which is supported by the major distros. And even
+if RHEL7 has kernel 3.10, KVM there has the required functionality there
+to make it close to a 4.5 or newer kernel.
