Commit 540d5422 ("x86/vmx: Support removing MSRs from the host/guest
load/save lists") introduced infrastructure finally exposed by
commit fd32dcfe ("x86/vmx: Don't leak EFER.NXE into guest context")
that led to a functional regression on Harpertown and earlier cores
(Gen 1 VT-x) due to MSR count being incorrectly set in VMCS.
As the result, as soon as guest EFER becomes equal to Xen EFER
(which eventually happens in almost every 64-bit VM) and its MSR
entry is supposed to be removed, a stale version of EFER is loaded
into a guest instead causing almost immediate guest failure.
