Ok, looks like the problem still exists in the wild :(
Fusion 7 doesn't have this issue so there's always the upgrade option :)

bhyve does depend on h/w save/restore of the PAT MSR, and this is the
case for all bare metal that is supported.
For the nested case, bhyve used to trap/emulate PAT MSR accesses and
not propagate them to the host. I'll look at resurrecting that code.
