In scripts, running

    modprobe kvm_amd     2>/dev/null
    modprobe kvm_intel   2>/dev/null

to ensure the modules are loaded causes Linux to log errors.

    $ dmesg --level=err

As one of the two KVM modules is already loaded, KVM is functioning, and
their is no error condition. Therefore, demote the log message level to
informational.
