Subject[PATCH v2] x86/kvm/vmx: Don't halt vcpu when L1 is injecting events to L2
Date
Although L2 is in halt state, it will be in the active state after
VM entry if the VM entry is vectoring according to SDM 26.6.2 Activity
State. Halting the vcpu here means the event won't be injected to L2
and this decision isn't reported to L1. Thus L0 drops an event that
should be injected to L2.

Changes in v2:
- Remove VID stuff. Only handle event injection in this patch.
