afaik, its just the virtualization, not the guest licenses.

    Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is priced on a per-managed-socket
    basis. The subscription includes the license to use Red Hat
    Enterprise Virtualization Manager for Servers (the management
    server) and the RHEV-H bare metal hypervisor on each licensed socket.

no mention of licensing of guest OS's including RHEL.
