Subject[PATCH v2 9/9] KVM: x86: never write to memory from kvm_vcpu_check_block
Date
kvm_vcpu_check_block() is called while not in TASK_RUNNING, and therefore
it cannot sleep. Writing to guest memory is therefore forbidden, but it
can happen on AMD processors if kvm_check_nested_events() causes a vmexit.

Fortunately, all events that are caught by kvm_check_nested_events() are
also recognized by kvm_vcpu_has_events() through vendor callbacks such as
kvm_x86_interrupt_allowed() or kvm_x86_ops.nested_ops->has_events(), so
remove the call and postpone the actual processing to vcpu_block().
