Subject[PATCH v2 05/46] KVM: SVM: Require exact CPUID.0x1 match when stuffing EDX at INIT
Do not allow an inexact CPUID "match" when querying the guest's CPUID.0x1
to stuff EDX during INIT. In the common case, where the guest CPU model
is an AMD variant, allowing an inexact match is a nop since KVM doesn't
emulate Intel's goofy "out-of-range" logic for AMD and Hygon. If the
vCPU model happens to be an Intel variant, an inexact match is possible
if and only if the max CPUID leaf is precisely '0'. Aside from the fact
that there's probably no CPU in existence with a single CPUID leaf, if
the max CPUID leaf is '0', that means that CPUID.0.EAX is '0', and thus
an inexact match for CPUID.0x1.EAX will also yield '0'.

So, with lots of twisty logic, no functional change intended.
