It would probably be OK to have the module load automatically in 
whichever way your distro deems fit every time you boot the host.  
/etc/modules et al.  One issue you might have to consider would be if 
you currently run, or ever decide to run something else that wants to 
use AMD-V (pacifica).  For instance, if you ever decided to install a 
fairly recent version of parallels, you would want to unload kvm-amd 
before loading the package or else you would not have a very happy time.
