This can be reproduced readily by preemption enabled on L0 and disabled on L1.

Preemption timer for nested VMX is emulated by hrtimer which is started on L2
entry, stopped on L2 exit and evaluated via the check_nested_events hook. However,
nested_vmx_exit_handled is always return true for preemption timer vmexit, then
the L1 preemption timer vmexit is captured and be treated as a L2 preemption
timer vmexit, incurr a nested vmexit dereference NULL pointer.

This patch fix it by depending on check_nested_events to capture L2 preemption
timer(emulated hrtimer) expire and nested vmexit.
