Wincy, our QA found regressions with this patch that 64bit L2 linux guest
fails to boot up when running nested kvm on kvm.

Environment:
------------
Host OS (ia32/ia32e/IA64):ia32e
Guest OS (ia32/ia32e/IA64):ia32e
Guest OS Type (Linux/Windows):Linux
kvm.git Commit:6557bada461afeaa920a189fae2cff7c8fdce39f
qemu.kvm Commit:5c697ae74170d43928cb185f5ac1a9058adcae0b
Host Kernel Version:3.19.0-rc3
Hardware:Ivytown_EP, Haswell_EP


Bug detailed description:
--------------------------
create 64bit linux guest as L2 guest, the guest boot up fail

note:
1. create a 32bit linux guest as L2 guest, the guest boots up fine.
2. create a 64bit windows guest as L2 guest, the guest boots up fine.
3. this should be a kernel bug:
kvm + qemu = result
6557bada + 5c697ae7 = bad
8fff5e37 + 5c697ae7 = good

Reproduce steps:
----------------
1 create L1 guest:
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 8G -smp 4 -net nic,macaddr=00:12:31:34:51:31 -net tap,script=/etc/kvm/qemu-ifup nested-kvm.qcow -cpu host

2. create L2 guest
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 2G -smp 2 -net none rhel6u5.qcow

Current result:
----------------
create 64bit linux guest as L2 guest, the guest boots up fail

Expected result:
----------------
create 64bit linux guest as L2 guest, the guest boots up fine

Please take a look.

Thanks
-Yong
