From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@intel.com>

Or: Don't re-initialize vmcs02's controls on every nested VM-Entry.

VMWRITEs to the major VMCS controls are deceptively expensive.  Intel
CPUs with VMCS caching (Westmere and later) also optimize away
consistency checks on VM-Entry, i.e. skip consistency checks if the
relevant fields have not changed since the last successful VM-Entry (of
the cached VMCS).  Because uops are a precious commodity, uCode's dirty
VMCS field tracking isn't as precise as software would prefer.  Notably,
writing any of the major VMCS fields effectively marks the entire VMCS
dirty, i.e. causes the next VM-Entry to perform all consistency checks,
which consumes several hundred cycles.

Zero out the controls' shadow copies during VMCS allocation and use the
optimized setter when "initializing" controls.  While this technically
affects both non-nested and nested virtualization, nested virtualization
is the primary beneficiary as avoid VMWRITEs when prepare vmcs02 allows
hardware to optimizie away consistency checks.
