Commit 46a704f8409f ("KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Preserve userspace HTM state
properly", 2017-06-15) added code to read transactional memory (TM)
registers but forgot to enable TM before doing so.  The result is
that if userspace does have live values in the TM registers, a KVM_RUN
ioctl will cause a host kernel crash like this:

The fix is just to turn on the TM bit in the MSR before accessing the
registers.
