After live-migrating to a kernel with this patch, the flag won't show up
in subsequent migration blobs (i.e. guest_xsave->region) anymore, right?
So afterwards, you can migrate to kernels without this patch without
risking to trigger the issue. But there could still be snapshots from
before PVE 8 that can trigger the issue in PVE 9 if we'd drop this patch.
