KVM: x86: fix emulation of "movzbl %bpl, %eax"
When I was looking at RHEL5.9's failure to start with unrestricted_guest=0/emulate_invalid_guest_state=1, I got it working with a slightly older tree than kvm.git. I now debugged the remaining failure, which was introduced by commit 660696d1 (KVM: X86 emulator: fix source operand decoding for 8bit mov[zs]x instructions, 2013-04-24) introduced a similar mis-emulation to the one in commit 8acb4207 (KVM: fix sil/dil/bpl/spl in the mod/rm fields, 2013-05-30). The incorrect decoding occurs in 8-bit movzx/movsx instructions whose 8-bit operand is sil/dil/bpl/spl. Needless to say, "movzbl %bpl, %eax" does occur in RHEL5.9's decompression prolog, just a handful of instructions before finally giving control to the decompressed vmlinux and getting out of the invalid guest state. Because OpMem8 bypasses decode_modrm, the same handling of the REX prefix must be applied to OpMem8.
