Yes, it's automatic. But I think it's worth noting somewhere that, in
certain kind of hardware, a virtualized instance of Hurd is able to
run up to ten times faster. Perhaps we should also warn people that
running it without EPT/RVI will heavily degrade performance, as the
cost of virtualization for this case is much higher than what you'll
usually expect if you're used to virtualize other OS, and could give a
bad impression for people trying it for the first time.
