This is because the debug registers are not loaded correctly on

Er, i do not understand how it works. The BP is enabled in this test case so
the debug registers are always reloaded before entering guest as
KVM_DEBUGREG_BP_ENABLED bit is always set on switch_db_regs. What did i miss?
Note that KVM_DEBUGREG_BP_ENABLED does not have to be set, since
kvm_update_dr7() is not called once the guest has KVM_DEBUGREG_WONT_EXIT.
