XSAVE was disabled in 22084:ae0cd4e5cc01 because the original XSAVE
support didn't include saving/restoring XSAVE contexts (i.e. it broke
live migration).  The changeset that added that support didn't re-enable
xsave. :(

The attached patch is the missing change to re-enable it by default
(totally untested).
