    Subject[PATCH 0/18][RFC] Nested Paging support for Nested SVM (aka NPT-Virtualization)

    here are the patches that implement nested paging support for nested
    svm. They are somewhat intrusive to the soft-mmu so I post them as RFC
    in the first round to get feedback about the general direction of the
    changes. Nevertheless I am proud to report that with these patches the
    famous kernel-compile benchmark runs only 4% slower in the l2 guest as
    in the l1 guest when l2 is single-processor. With SMP guests the
    situation is very different. The more vcpus the guest has the more is
    the performance drop from l1 to l2.
    Anyway, this post is to get feedback about the overall concept of these
    patches. Please review and give feedback :-)
