    kvm/x86: do not clear hyperv synic pages when setting MSRs
    Existing code resets guest synic message and event flag pages to zero
    when guest or host updates their guest PAs by writing to corresponding
    This turned out to be a problem for migration code when guest had a
    SYNIC irq to inject before suspending. After resuming qemu resets MSRs to
    saved values and KVM zeroes out migrated guest memory as a side effect.
    Following that guest sees an IRQ but doesn't see any event flags in event
    flags page, skips this IRQ and hangs indefinitely.
    This memory is owned by guest so let us not assume any additional
    responsibility for it and remove zero out calls, which also fixes
    failing migration scenario described above.
