please improve VERR_ACCESS_DENIED error text

I setup 3 vms: Haiku Mer w7

I was able to run Haiku, Mer and w7 simultaneously. Then I enabled VT-x for w7. Started Mer, and tried to run w7.

An active VM already uses software virtualization. It is not allowed to simultaneously use VT-x. (VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).

This error message, while technically correct is poorly written (bad grammar, and confusing).

Could you possibly replace the message with this: "This machine is configured to use VT-x which requires all running instances use VT-x. There is an instance <name here> currently using software virtualization."
