Hmm; I suspect the bug here is actually in the save side -- the syncing
of the vmcb in the save routine is not conditional on v == current, and
the "already synced" bit that it would otherwise gate on isn't properly

Try the attached patch; I'm sorry to say that I suspect it will fix the
odd output of xen_hvmctx but probably won't fix the BSOD. :(
