Do not update the new vmcb's last-run cpu when switching to a different
vmcb.  If the vCPU is migrated between its last run and a vmcb switch,
e.g. for nested VM-Exit, then setting the cpu without marking the vmcb
dirty will lead to KVM running the vCPU on a different physical cpu with
stale clean bit settings.

                          vcpu->cpu    current_vmcb->cpu    hardware
  pre_svm_run()           cpu0         cpu0                 cpu0,clean
  kvm_arch_vcpu_load()    cpu1         cpu0                 cpu0,clean
  svm_switch_vmcb()       cpu1         cpu1                 cpu0,clean
  pre_svm_run()           cpu1         cpu1                 kaboom

Simply delete the offending code; unlike VMX, which needs to update the
cpu at switch time due to the need to do VMPTRLD, SVM only cares about
which cpu last ran the vCPU.
