KVM: x86 emulator: add get_cached_segment_base() callback to x86_emulate_ops
On VMX it is expensive to call get_cached_descriptor() just to get segment base since multiple vmcs_reads are done instead of only one. Introduce new call back get_cached_segment_base() for efficiency. Signed-off-by: Gleb Natapov <gleb@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>
