These should be exposed to the guest if and only if they're supported in
the host and guest, i.e. kvm_supported_xss() needs to be checked. And,
again assuming USER and KERNEL can be virtualized independently, the logic
needs to account for exposting USER but KERNEL and vice versa.

The SSP MSRs should only be passed through if the guest has SHSTK, e.g.
KVM should intercept RDMSR and WRMSR to inject #GP in those cases.
