I couldn't reproduce the hardware error. Unit test just got #UD and
exited, which seems to be because KVM doesn't add the exec controls in
vmcs02.

Aren't "0444" and "(00400 | 00040 | 00004)" the same number?

I'm not convinced this patch fixes anything and I think we have two
options when approaching VPID:
1) hide and forbid VPIDs in L1 if they are disabled on L0
2) expose VPID hardware to L1 regardless of L0 settings

We treat other features like (1), because it simplifies implementation,
so I'd do the same for VPID ...
