KVM: MMU: remove prefault from invlpg handler
The invlpg prefault optimization breaks Windows 2008 R2 occasionally. The visible effect is that the invlpg handler instantiates a pte which is, microseconds later, written with a different gfn by another vcpu. The OS could have other mechanisms to prevent a present translation from being used, which the hypervisor is unaware of. While the documentation states that the cpu is at liberty to prefetch tlb entries, it looks like this is not heeded, so remove tlb prefetch from invlpg.
