Generally it matters less, since we hardcode virtio default for non-x86
KVM regardless of OS. Support for those arches in most distros, and in
virt-install, came far after virtio was widely available. Also x86 is
the only case we previously printed a warning for too.

But now that you mention it, we probably should just enable it to be
consistent even if it doesn't have a ton of impact. I'll look at it
