    I like this concept, and will be happy to change the nested VMX code to use
    it as well.

    One small thing: After the name change, it might not be obvious on first
    sight that these functions refer to the state of the vcpu, not the state
    of the actual CPU (which, if you think about it, is never in guest mode while
    KVM code is running ;-)). I think that a short comment before the definition
    of these functions might be useful - perhaps saying that they pertain to a
    hypervisor running in the vcpu (i.e., nested virtualization).
