Why is doing rdmsrs necessary? With the INVALID_TOKEN error we know we
are out-of-sync i.e. have been sleeping and then one just needs to do
wrmsrs.

I think one retry should be enough given that VMM traps EINIT. One retry
is needed to take care of the guest itself (or host if we are running on
bare metal) having been in a sleep state.
