+Subject: [PATCH] target-i386: do not read/write MSR_TSC_AUX from KVM if CPUID
+ bit is not set
+
+KVM does not let you read or write this MSR if the corresponding CPUID
+bit is not set.  This in turn causes MSRs that come after MSR_TSC_AUX
+to be ignored by KVM_SET_MRSS.
+
+One visible symptom is that s3.flat from kvm-unit-tests fails with
+CPUs that do not have RDTSCP, because the SMBASE is not reset to
+0x30000 after reset.
+
+Fixes: c9b8f6b6210847b4381c5b2ee172b1c7eb9985d6
