KVM: nVMX: VMX instructions: fix segment checks when L1 is in long mode.

I couldn't get Xen to boot a L2 HVM when it was nested under KVM - it was
getting a GP(0) on a rather unspecial vmread from Xen:

Tracing my host KVM showed it was the one injecting the GP(0) when
emulating the VMREAD and checking the destination segment permissions in
get_vmx_mem_address():

Cross-checking the KVM/VMX VMREAD emulation code with the Intel Software
Developper Manual Volume 3C - "VMREAD - Read Field from Virtual-Machine
Control Structure", I found that we're enforcing that the destination
operand is NOT located in a read-only data segment or any code segment when
the L1 is in long mode - BUT that check should only happen when it is in
protected mode.

Shuffling the code a bit to make our emulation follow the specification
allows me to boot a Xen dom0 in a nested KVM and start HVM L2 guests
without problems.
