After we do wrmsrl() the page is no longer 'magic' so in case eventual
users try using it they'll most likely misbehave -- so changing the
shutdown order won't help.

The only user of these pages is currently KVM. Can we still have vCPUs
running on the outgoing CPU at this point? If case we can we're in
trouble and we need to somehow kick them out first.

Yep, will do.

Not strictly required as we clean HV_X64_ENLIGHTENED_VMCS_RECOMMENDED
above so KVM won't use it but I can add the check to make the API
better.

Thanks,
