Thats a good idea, will change that. It improves readability.

I don't think thats a good idea. The nested exit handling is at the
beginning of svm_handle_exit to hide the nested vcpu state from the kvm
logic which may not be aware of nesting at all. My rationale is that the
host hypervisor don't see any exits that needs to be reinjected to the
l1 hypervisor.
