Correct.  Note, it's likely that we have almost everything covered 
already, so it's mostly testing (beyond implementing SMM entry/exit).

However, we have a large deployed base with no SMM support, so we need a 
fallback if SMM is not available.  It's also tricky to probe for working 
SMM, I don't think there's a cpuid bit for that.
