    x86/svm: add virtual VMLOAD/VMSAVE support
   
    On AMD family 17h server processors, there is a feature called virtual
    VMLOAD/VMSAVE.  This allows a nested hypervisor to preform a VMLOAD or
    VMSAVE without needing to be intercepted by the host hypervisor.
    Virtual VMLOAD/VMSAVE requires the host hypervisor to be in long mode
    and nested page tables to be enabled.  For more information about it
    please see:
   
    AMD64 Architecture Programmer’s Manual Volume 2: System Programming
    http://support.amd.com/TechDocs/24593.pdf
    Section: VMSAVE and VMLOAD Virtualization (Section 15.33.1)
   
    This patch series adds support to check for and enable the virtual
    VMLOAD/VMSAVE features if available.
