KVM: x86: Use adjustment in guest cycles when handling MSR_IA32_TSC_ADJUST

When kvm_set_msr_common() handles a guest's write to
MSR_IA32_TSC_ADJUST, it will calcuate an adjustment based on the data
written by guest and then use it to adjust TSC offset by calling a
call-back adjust_tsc_offset(). The 3rd parameter of adjust_tsc_offset()
indicates whether the adjustment is in host TSC cycles or in guest TSC
cycles. If SVM TSC scaling is enabled, adjust_tsc_offset()
[i.e. svm_adjust_tsc_offset()] will first scale the adjustment;
otherwise, it will just use the unscaled one. As the MSR write here
comes from the guest, the adjustment is in guest TSC cycles. However,
the current kvm_set_msr_common() uses it as a value in host TSC
cycles (by using true as the 3rd parameter of adjust_tsc_offset()),
which can result in an incorrect adjustment of TSC offset if SVM TSC
scaling is enabled. This patch fixes this problem.
