Avoid kernel panic: Detect if other processes are using vmx #9
@xez I am no expert on VMX but I think I read that there are two modes: one that lets other processes use VMX, and one that doesn't and I believe Virtualbox uses the latter. I believe Parallels also does that, however it has some error handling code, and will prompt to close Virtualbox.
I am not sure if folks at Parallels added virtualbox-specific code (i.e. check if Virtualbox is running) or if there is a proper way to check if we can access vmx before actually using it.
