All-zero is a valid value for secondary controls, so I think yes. Besides:

1) userspace can always get into a situation where there are no valid
secondary controls but processor-based execution controls have bit 31 as
1-allowed;

2) I doubt that vmfunc can be the one bit that causes
nested_vmx_secondary_ctls_high to become zero :)
