Here is the reason for my failures:

000000000000010f <make_vmcs_current>:
10f: 48 89 7c 24 f8 mov %rdi,-0x8(%rsp)
114: 9c pushfq
115: 58 pop %rax
116: 48 83 c8 41 or $0x41,%rax
11a: 50 push %rax
11b: 9d popfq
11c: 0f c7 74 24 f8 vmptrld -0x8(%rsp)
121: 0f 96 c0 setbe %al
124: 0f b6 c0 movzbl %al,%eax
127: c3 retq

The compiler is not aware of the fact that push/pop exists in this
function and, thus, places the vmcs parameter on the stack without
reserving the space. So the pushfq will overwrite the vmcs pointer and
let the function fail.
