Subject[PATCH 3.16 294/305] kvm: x86: Add AMD's EX_CFG to the list of ignored MSRs
3.16.63-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eduardo Habkost <ehabkost@redhat.com>

commit 0e1b869fff60c81b510c2d00602d778f8f59dd9a upstream.

Some guests OSes (including Windows 10) write to MSR 0xc001102c
on some cases (possibly while trying to apply a CPU errata).
Make KVM ignore reads and writes to that MSR, so the guest won't
crash.

The MSR is documented as "Execution Unit Configuration (EX_CFG)",
at AMD's "BIOS and Kernel Developer's Guide (BKDG) for AMD Family
15h Models 00h-0Fh Processors".
