Also known as Paravirtualization level or maximim cpuid function present in this leaf.
This is just the EAX value for 0x40000000.

QEMU knows this is KVM_CPUID_SIGNATURE (0x40000000).

This is based on:

Microsoft Hypervisor CPUID Leaves:
  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff542428%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Linux kernel change starts with:

Also:
  http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1205.0/00100.html

VMware documention on CPUIDs (Mechanisms to determine if software is
running in a VMware virtual machine):
  http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1009458

QEMU has the value HYPERV_CPUID_MIN defined.
