Indeed you are right about it and it should work but not every cpu do
the same with the same VM engine.
if you do have all of them running I am sure you can tell the "client"
or anyone in the world that it works.
Else.. you can just tell him it's supported by the "vendor" or the
product team\list etc in a case He will have some troubles running it.
