I think this should not happen, unless you also document that other
random events (hypothetically, it could be some other core using AMX?)
can cause the loss of XTILEDATA if XFD[AMX]=1. Virtualization should
not be special, I'd prefer that the guest has the same behavior as bare
metal in this respect.
