I enforce this check to ensure vmcs_write to the Guest_IA32_PKRS without 
error. if deleted, vmcs_write to GUEST_IA32_PKRS may executed when PKS 
is unsupported.

We overwrite the L2 PKRS with L1's value when L2 doesn't support PKS. 
Because the L1's VM_ENTRY_LOAD_IA32_PKRS is off, we need to migrate L1's 
PKRS to L2.

Yes, It's reasonable.
