Doesn't this break an MMIO read? The registers haven't been updated yet,
and the debugger may not see the right thing...

How about something like:

if (handled && (vcpu->guest_debug & KVM_GUESTDBG_SINGLESTEP)) {
if (run->exit_reason == KVM_EXIT_MMIO)
kvm_handle_mmio_return(vcpu, run);
[...]
}

Or am I missing something?

Thanks,

M.
