I don't think there's any reason KVM needs to be querying the device
tree directly, is there?
Can't it just use the security flags (security_features.h), that are
initialised by the powernv platform code based on the device tree.
I seem to remember we didn't do it that way originally just because we
didn't have time to get everything lined up.
