    @jburwell Creating Marvin test for this PR will be a huge undertaking. It would require
building and configuring a hypervisor in a deployed VM and then creating VM in VM. Considering
storage, environmental and network implication the test will be complicated and error prone.
An alternative approach would require integrating vSphere SDK with Marvin python libraries
and query vSphere for the actual nested virtualization settings from a deployed VM. The effort
doesn't seem to be warranted for such a minor change. As long as standard integration suite
is passing this shouldn't affect any existing functionality. What do you think?

> h2. Introduction
> It is desired to support nested virtualization at VM level for VMware hypervisor. Current
behaviour supports enabling/desabling global nested virtualization by modifying global config
{{'vmware.nested.virtualization'}}. It is wished to improve this feature, having control at
VM level instead of a global control only.
> h2. Proposal
> A new global configuration is added, to enable/disable VM nested virtualization control:
{{'vmware.nested.virtualization.perVM'}}. Default value=false
> h2. Behaviour
> After a vm deployment or start command, vm params include {{nestedVirtualizationFlag}}
key and its value is:
> * true -> nested virtualization enabled
> * false -> nested virtualization disabled
> We will determinate nested virtualization enabled/disabled by examining:
> * (1) global configuration {{'vmware.nested.virtualization'}} value
> * (2) global configuration {{'vmware.nested.virtualization.perVM'}} value
> * (3) {{'nestedVirtualizationFlag'}} value in {{user_vm_details}} if present, null if
not.
> Using this 3 values, there are different use cases:
> # (1) = TRUE, (2) = TRUE, (3) is null -> ENABLED
> # (1) = TRUE, (2) = TRUE, (3) = TRUE -> ENABLED
> # (1) = TRUE, (2) = TRUE, (3) = FALSE -> DISABLED
> # (1) = TRUE, (2) = FALSE -> ENABLED
> # (1) = FALSE, (2) = TRUE, (3) is null -> DISABLED
> # (1) = FALSE, (2) = TRUE, (3) = TRUE -> ENABLED
> # (1) = FALSE, (2) = TRUE, (3) = FALSE -> DISABLED
> # (1) = FALSE, (2) = FALSE -> DISABLED
