As you control the bare-metal node when you get those, nothing stops you from enabling it ?
Also keep in mind that it's a mix of Intel and AMD nodes, so setup correctly the options for nested, based on cpu arch
Putting on feedback for now

No, we don't. We have a tenant that allows us to start unprivileged pods (with random uids), we don't have access to the nodes or the openshift administration in general.

For the record, this is done with something like this:
```
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/kvm-intel.conf
options kvm-intel nested=1
```
(Same for s/intel/amd/)

Oh, so you should have mentioned that it was for openshift (apps.ci) and not for CentOS CI normal jobs, which run on real bare-metal nodes for testing
Still assigned to @bstinson in that case
