Can you test the attached patch? Found a bug when re-inspecting the
guilty commit, the wrong VMCS field is being modifying when applying an
errata to disable VM_ENTRY_LOAD_IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL. Your CPU is
listed as one of the models affected by the errata. Compile tested only.

Subject: [PATCH] KVM: VMX: Use the correct var field when clearing
VM_ENTRY_LOAD_IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL

Fix a recently introduced bug that results in the wrong VMCS control
field being updated when applying a IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL errata.
