Most guests will not need the whole xstate feature set. So perhaps you
could set XFD to the host value | the guest value, trap #NM if the
host XFD is zero, and possibly reflect the exception to the guest's XFD
and XFD_ERR.

In addition, loading the guest XFD MSRs should use the MSR autoload
feature (add_atomic_switch_msr).
