Subject: [PATCH  v3 5/6] KVM: VMX: Use BT+JNC, i.e. EFLAGS.CF to select
 VMRESUME vs. VMLAUNCH

From: Sean Christopherson <seanjc@...gle.com>

Use EFLAGS.CF instead of EFLAGS.ZF to track whether to use VMRESUME versus
VMLAUNCH.  Freeing up EFLAGS.ZF will allow doing VERW, which clobbers ZF,
for MDS mitigations as late as possible without needing to duplicate VERW
for both paths.
