Description Gianluca Cecchi 2016-01-15 03:06:45 EST
Description of problem:
In version 2.4.1-4 the file kvm.conf under /etc/modprobe.d was added, but its (actually commented) syntax is wrong, so that if a user simply uncomments one line he/she doesn't get what expected (nested virtualization enablement)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uncomment intel line in /etc/modprobe.d/kvm.conf
2. now you have "option kvm_intel nested=1"
3. dracut -f -v + reboot (or modprobe -r kvm_intel ; modprobe kvm_intel)

Actual results:
systool -a -v -m kvm_intel | grep nested
    nested              = "N"

Expected results:
    nested              = "Y"

Additional info:

If you put the right syntax (with the final "s")
options kvm_intel nested=1
it works as expected

So, even if commented out, the lines should have te right syntax
