Do you mean that fpu_init_fpstate_user() will be updated to add
supported_xcr0 later? :) 

I'm thinking if guest_fpu::xfd is good to directly initialize as user's
init_fpstate.xfd. Because before guest initializes XFD, "hardware"
is reset value. So it would be better to make guest_fpu::xfd the
same so no need to reload zero before vmenter during this time.

Thanks,
