      Description

      Linux: Facter uses virt-what (if root) and then lspci (if not root) to detect hyperv. virt-what does this by checking the output of the cpuid instruction for "Microsoft Hv", and otherwise, "Microsoft Corporation Hyper-v" should appear in the lspci output.

      Windows: Facter queries wmi's manufacturer value for "Microsoft" and its model value for "Virtual Machine" to detect hyperv.
