Description

Similar to #13063, the in-kernel interface used by bhyve to access the VMCB on AMD hardware could be cleaned up. Failed register identification checks should be fatal when the consumer is in-kernel (and therefore expected to operate on valid registers). Making this consistent will simplify later work to expose more of the VM state to userspace.
