I just bisected this patch to break booting a VM with ept=1 but unrestricted_guest=0
(I needed to re-test unrestricted_guest=0 bug related to SMM, but didn't want
to boot without EPT. With ept=0,the VM boots with this patch applied).

Reverting this patch on top of kvm/queue also works.

Best regards,
Maxim levitsky
