Subject[PATCH v6 01/12] KVM: x86: fix possible infinite loop caused by reexecute_instruction
Currently, we reexecute all unhandleable instructions if they do not
access on the mmio, however, it can not work if host map the readonly
memory to guest. If the instruction try to write this kind of memory,
it will fault again when guest retry it, then we will goto a infinite
loop: retry instruction -> write #PF -> emulation fail ->
retry instruction -> ...

Fix it by retrying the instruction only when it faults on the writable
memory
