Subject[PATCH 25/58] KVM: VMX: Avoid saving and restoring msrs on lightweight vmexit
Date
From: Eddie Dong <eddie.dong@intel.com>

In a lightweight exit (where we exit and reenter the guest without
scheduling or exiting to userspace in between), we don't need various
msrs on the host, and avoiding shuffling them around reduces raw exit
time by 8%.

i386 compile fix by Daniel Hecken <dh@bahntechnik.de>.
