vbox incorrectly claims SVME when not using SVM -> fixed in SVN

VirtualBox claims SVME on phenom CPUs when hardware virtualisation is disabled and also does not release SVME after the VM shut down. This causes no visible effects for most users - except on OpenSUSE-patched KVM which specifically checks that SVME is not used before using it, which means that it is not possible to use KVM during or after VirtualBox doing software-virtualisation.
