UnrestrictedExecution refers to 16-bit hardware virtualization on
newer Intel CPUs. (2nd gen Core iSomethingMeaningless [2600])

HWVirtExProperty... I don't about it. I'm not aware of shared VT-x, so
it seems to be always exclusive. Basically you can't run MS VirtualPC
and VBox sametime on Windows hosts or KVM and VBox on Linux hosts.
