SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 4/8] kvm:vmx Pass through host CET related MSRs to Guest.

The changelog needs to explain why it's ok to expose these MSRS to the
guest, e.g. call out which are saved/loaded through the VMCS and which
are saved/loaded via XSAVES/XRSTORS. And maybe expand "runtime settings"
to elaborate on when most guest kernels will access the MSRs, i.e. to
justify exposing them to the guest.

It should also clarify why IA32_PL1_SSP and IA32_PL2_SSP are NOT exposed
to the guest.
