Subject[patch 26/71] KVM: x86: Ignore reads to EVNTSEL MSRs

2.6.30-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Amit Shah <amit.shah@redhat.com>

(cherry picked from commit 7fe29e0faacb650d31b9e9f538203a157bec821d)

We ignore writes to the performance counters and performance event
selector registers already. Kaspersky antivirus reads the eventsel
MSR causing it to crash with the current behaviour.

Return 0 as data when the eventsel registers are read to stop the
crash.
