add warning if AMD-V or VT-x is not supported

It would be nice to be able to select 64-bit versions of the OS's and then get warned (eg. via a pop-up) if AMD-V or VT-x is not available on your processor not just a grayed area in the general settings. (maybe add a warning in the settings panel too.) This would stop bug reports like this one for example #2948 Attempting to load an x64 operating system, however this CPU is not compatible with x64 mode. Please install a 32-bit X86 operating system.

thanks -human user 1000-

The warnings in VBox 3.1.8 / 3.2.0 should be sufficient for these cases.
