Subject[PATCH 2/9] KVM: SVM: Move INTR vmexit out of atomic code
Date
The nested SVM code emulates a #vmexit caused by a request
to open the irq window right in the request function. This
is a bug because the request function runs with preemption
and interrupts disabled but the #vmexit emulation might
sleep. This can cause a schedule()-while-atomic bug and is
fixed with this patch.
