Could you opportunistically update the comment to call out that KVM requires
VM_EXIT_CLEAR_IA32_RTIT_CTL to expose PT to the guest?  E.g. something like

	/*
	 * KVM's requires VM_EXIT_CLEAR_IA32_RTIT_CTL to expose PT to the guest,
	 * i.e. RTIT_CTL is always cleared on VM-Exit.  Restore it if necessary.
	 */

With that,
