Subject[PATCH 0/2] [GIT PULL][v3.3] x86: Fix up CFI for the nested NMI


Jan posted a patch that fixes the CFI annotations. I recommend getting
this into 3.3 as this is new code and it would be nice to have CFI
correct. It also does a little simplification of it as well.

The second patch is comment changes only (very low impact on messing
anything up). I realized that the comments had some references to
previous approaches that I tried, and I fixed them to reflect what
the final result was. I also added some more comments to describe
the code a bit better.
