This is intentional.  The VMX MSR entries should not have been added.
What combination of host kernel/QEMU are you using, and what QEMU
command line?

Host kernel: 4.15.0 (ubuntu 18.04)
Qemu: https://gitlab.com/virtio-fs/qemu/tree/virtio-fs-dev
cmdline: qemu-system-x86_64 -M pc -cpu host --enable-kvm -smp 8 \
                  -m 4G,maxmem=4G

But before 20a78b02d315, the older kernel + latest qemu can boot guest
