v4 (that would be Broadwell)?

What version were you using for KVM? There are quite a few nested virt
optimizations in kvm/queue (which may make enlightened VMCS both more or
less efficient).

In particular, with latest kvm/queue you could try tracing vmread and
vmwrite vmexits, and see if you get any. If you do, that might be an
easy few hundred cycles savings.
