I wonder if these bit definitions should go in the asm-generic part of
hyperv-tlfs.h instead of the X64 specific part. They look very architecture
neutral (in which case the X64 should be dropped from the name
as well). Of course, they can be moved later when/if we get to that point
and have a firmer understanding of what is and isn't arch neutral.

Should the EBX value be captured in the ms_hyperv structure with the
other similar values, and then used from there?
