Subject: [PATCH] kvm: fix hyperv tsc page clear wrong address

tsc page addr need clear the low HV_X64_MSR_TSC_REFERENCE_ADDRESS_SHIFT bits
before kvm_write_guest write the zero tsc_ref structure to guest, or it will lead
guest to get wrong clocksource.

windows guest will get strong impact, QueryPerformanceCounter will always return 0
,all things in windows rely on clock source, will in serious chaos.
