KVM: VMX: Fix enable VPID conditions

This can be reproduced by running L2 on L1, and disable VPID on L0
if w/o commit "KVM: nVMX: Fix nested VPID vmx exec control", the L2
crash as below:

Reference SDM 30.3 INVVPID:

Protected Mode Exceptions
- #UD
  - If not in VMX operation.
  - If the logical processor does not support VPIDs (IA32_VMX_PROCBASED_CTLS2[37]=0).
  - If the logical processor supports VPIDs (IA32_VMX_PROCBASED_CTLS2[37]=1) but does
    not support the INVVPID instruction (IA32_VMX_EPT_VPID_CAP[32]=0).

So we should check both VPID enable bit in vmx exec control and INVVPID support bit
in vmx capability MSRs to enable VPID. This patch adds the guarantee to not enable
VPID if either INVVPID or single-context/all-context invalidation is not exposed in
vmx capability MSRs.
