Include example kvm.conf with nested options commented out

Customers trying nested KVM (tech preview) will have an example of how to enable nested permanently.
Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-10.el7
Verified this bug with qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-22.el7.x86_64
1.Enable nested via kvm.conf
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/kvm.conf
# Setting modprobe kvm_intel/kvm_amd nested = 1
# only enables Nested Virtualization until the next reboot or
# module reload. Uncomment the option applicable
# to your system below to enable the feature permanently.
# User changes in this file are preserved across upgrades.
# For Intel
options kvm_intel nested=1
# For AMD
#options kvm_amd nested=1
2. reboot host
3. confirm nested if it is enabled
# cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/nested
For AMD machine. It is the same result with Intel machine.
So, Base on this testing result. This bug is fixed.
