What I'm trying to catch here is the guest that has been restored with
nASSGIreq set. At the moment, we don't do anything on the userspace
side, because the vmm could decide to write that particular bit
multiple times, and switching between the two modes is expensive (not
to mention that all the vcpus may not have been created yet).

Moving it to the first run makes all these pitfalls go away (we have the
final nASSSGIreq value, and all the vcpus are accounted for).

Does this make sense to you?

Thanks,

         M.
