KVM/nVMX: Set the CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS if we have a valid L02 MSR bitmap

We either clear the CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS and end up intercepting all
MSR accesses or create a valid L02 MSR bitmap and use that. This decision
has to be made every time we evaluate whether we are going to generate the
L02 MSR bitmap.

Before commit:

  d28b387fb74d ("KVM/VMX: Allow direct access to MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL")

... this was probably OK since the decision was always identical.

This is no longer the case now since the MSR bitmap might actually
change once we decide to not intercept SPEC_CTRL and PRED_CMD.
