This was discussed in the v12 and v13 patch series. There is existing
code in kvm_handle_guest_abort
for injecting an abort back into the guest. We only want to do that if
it was an abort that was not
handled by the firmware first handling. So here we verify that at least
one of the SEA error sources
successfully reported an error record sent from the firmware. If there
were no errors reported by
firmware, then we want to continue with the current implementation that
will inject the virtual
abort. (kvm_inject_vabt)

Thanks,
Tyler
