Reset the per-vCPU available and dirty register masks when switching
between vmcs01 and vmcs02, as the masks track state relative to the
current VMCS.  The stale masks don't cause problems in the current code
base because the registers are either unconditionally written on nested
transitions or, in the case of segment registers, have an additional
tracker that is manually reset.

Note, by dropping (previously implicitly, now explicitly) the dirty mask
when switching the active VMCS, KVM is technically losing writes to the
associated fields.  But, the only regs that can be dirtied (RIP, RSP and
PDPTRs) are unconditionally written on nested transitions, e.g. explicit
writeback is a waste of cycles, and a WARN_ON would be rather pointless.
