This doesn't seem like a very safe test, since userspace can provide
whatever CPUID tables it likes. You should definitely think about
hardening this code against a malicious userspace.

When you add a new guest MSR, it should be enumerated by
KVM_GET_MSR_INDEX_LIST. Otherwise, userspace will not save/restore the
MSR value on suspend/resume.
