Just a small fix to the commit message:

This happened when the host hit a page fault, and delivered it as in an
async page fault, while the guest was in an RCU read-side critical
section. The guest then tries to reschedule in kvm_async_pf_task_wait(),
but rcu_preempt_note_context_switch() would treat the reschedule as a
sleep in RCU read-side critical section, which is not allowed (even in
preemptible RCU). Thus the WARN.

Queued with that change, thanks.
