I went over all nested.c and renamed all mentions of vmcb which refer to guest's vmcb to vmcb12,
and mentions of nested_vmcb to vmcb12 as well. I hope I didn't made this patch too much larger.
I updated the patch subject too.

Or rather not reset this address at all, as I did later in the 
caching pathes which I dropped for now.

I was afraid to touch this struct since it is user visible. I noticed it.
