This commit doesn't seem correct to me.

According to Intel SDM "MOV—Move to/from Control Registers":
"If CR4.PCIDE = 1, bit 63 of the source operand to MOV to CR3 determines whether the instruction
invalidates entries in the TLBs and the paging-structure caches
(see Section 4.10.4.1, “Operations that Invalidate TLBs and Paging-Structure Caches,”
in the Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 3A).
The instruction does not modify bit 63 of CR3, which is reserved and always 0."

However, after this commit kvm_set_cr3() will update vcpu->arch.cr3 to have bit CR3_PCID_INVD set.
Which is wrong as it should be reserved and always 0.
