Yes, due to the code dealing with MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL, there were several calls
to __sanitizer_cov_trace_pc() before the write to MSR_GS_BASE. The patch I
tested moves the write to MSR_GS_BASE to before all of them, so it's once again
the first thing after the asm block. Again I'm not sure it's the proper
solution, but it did make it stop crashing.

Also I'm guessing this isn't specific to nested virtualization; I just didn't
have KCOV enabled on the host, thus the host didn't crash.
