AFAIU we don't change anything in this regard (or, my intention was to
not change anything): hv-all is converted to the individual hv-*
properties (hv_cpuid_check_and_set()) actually sets cpu->hyperv_* flags
according to what's supported by kernel so when we migrate we will
require all these features supported.

I'll look to see that my expectations actually match the reallity,
thanks for the reminder!
