Sorry, just to clarify that the ordering in QEMU isn't made by us for this specific XFD enabling.
It has been there for long time for the general restoring of all the XCRs and MSRs.
(if you are interested..FYI: https://github.com/qemu/qemu/blob/master/target/i386/kvm/kvm.c#L4168).
- kvm_put_xsave()
- kvm_put_xcrs()
- kvm_put_msrs()

We need to check with the QEMU migration maintainer (Dave and Juan CC-ed)
if changing that ordering would be OK.
(In general, I think there are no hard rules documented for this ordering)

Thanks,
Wei
