KVM: x86 emulator: Correct management of REP prefix
This patch corrects some errors appearing when we have an emulation failure
on an operation using REP prefix.
When x86_emulate_insn() fails, saving EIP and ECX is not enough as emulation
should have modified other registers like RSI or RDI. Moreover, the emulation
can fail on the writeback, and in this case we are not able to restore
At beginning of x86_emulate_insn(), we restore registers from vcpu as they were
not modified by x86d_decode_insn() and we save EIP to be able to restore it
in case of failure.
