Write the desired L2 CR3 into vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 during nested VM-Enter
instead of deferring the VMWRITE until vmx_set_cr3().  If the VMWRITE
is deferred, then KVM can consume a stale vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 when it
refreshes vmcs12->guest_cr3 during nested_vmx_vmexit() if the emulated
VM-Exit occurs without actually entering L2, e.g. if the nested run
is squashed because nested VM-Enter (from L1) is putting L2 into HLT.

Note, the above scenario can occur regardless of whether L1 is
intercepting HLT, e.g. L1 can intercept HLT and then re-enter L2 with
vmcs.GUEST_ACTIVITY_STATE=HALTED.  But practically speaking, a VMM will
likely put a guest into HALTED if and only if it's not intercepting HLT.

In an ideal world where EPT *requires* unrestricted guest (and vice
versa), VMX could handle CR3 similar to how it handles RSP and RIP,
e.g. mark CR3 dirty and conditionally load it at vmx_vcpu_run().  But
the unrestricted guest silliness complicates the dirty tracking logic
to the point that explicitly handling vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 during nested
VM-Enter is a simpler overall implementation.
