  This issue is clear now, which is caused by Libvirt to get the CPU's 
unavailable-features by below command:

  but in SGX vm, since the sgx is initialized before VCPU because sgx need set 
the virtual EPC info in the cpuid.  

  So the /machine/unattached/device[0] is occupied by sgx, which fail to get 
the unvailable-features from

  We need fix this issue, but this can be done in Qemu or Libvirt side.

  1) Libvirt side
     If the libvirt support SGX EPCs, libvirt can use 
/machine/unattached/device[n] to check "unavailable-features".
     n is the next number of sgx's unattached_count.

  2) Qemu side
     One temp patch to create one /sgx in the /machine in the

    This patch can make sure vcpu is still /machine/unattached/device[0].

    Which solution is best?  thanks!
