KVM: VMX: Do not fully reset PI descriptor on vCPU reset

Parts of the posted interrupt descriptor configure host behavior,
such as the notification vector and destination. Overwriting them
with zero as done during vCPU reset breaks posted interrupts.
KVM (re-)writes these fields on certain occasions and belatedly fixes
the situation in many cases. However, if you have a guest configured
with "idle=poll", for example, the fields might stay zero forever.

Do not reset the full descriptor in vmx_vcpu_reset(). Instead,
reset only the outstanding notifications and leave everything
else untouched.
