I think we need to mess with handle_exit (or at least something else
than kvm_handle_mmio call sites) because the patches don't only fix MMIO
single stepping, but also other emulated stuff (system register
accesses, ...).

But with your suggestion maybe we can at least handle both MMIO cases in
a similar manner. I think we still need the code in handle_exit, or add
more code to deal case by case with other emulated instructions.
