yes, sync_xfd_after_exit might be more accurate.

We can use this

Can you remind what additional thing is required to support XFD for L2?
If only about performance I prefer to the current conservative approach
as the first step. As explained earlier, #NM should be rare if the guest
doesn't run AMX applications at all. Adding nested into this picture doesn't
make things a lot worser.
