I understand that incorrect use of INVD instruction will cause the host machine to crash due to memory inconsistency. But what else? Is there any correlation between CPU virtualization and CPU cache in a sense that, on a CPU that is already virtualized, running a correct implementation of invd will clear the cache which may affect the virtual CPU itself?
