This change is neat.

But current KVM_REQ_TLB_FLUSH_GUEST flushes vpid01 only, and it doesn't flush
vpid02.  vmx_flush_tlb_guest() might need to be changed to flush vpid02 too.

And if so, this nested_vmx_transition_tlb_flush() can be simplified further
since KVM_REQ_TLB_FLUSH_CURRENT(!enable_ept) can be replaced with
KVM_REQ_TLB_FLUSH_GUEST.
