[PATCH v5 07/12] x86/kvm/hyperv: don't clear VP assist pages on init




VP assist pages may hold valuable data which needs to be preserved across
migration. Clean PV EOI portion of the data on init, the guest is
responsible for making sure there's no garbage in the rest.

This will be used for nVMX migration, eVMCS address needs to be preserved.
