SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH v2 36/38] KVM: arm64: Respect virtual HCR_EL2.TVM and TRVM settings

I noticed that all these recursive patches don't change how we program
the physical HCR_EL2. Is that because we always respect the guest
hypervisor's configuration of the virtual HCR_EL2 into the physical one
when running the VM?

If so, perhaps we should add a single sentence in the commit messages
about that.

it's just 'recursive nested virtualization', not 'the recursive nested
virtualization', and I also think 'recursive virtualization' is
sufficient.

why do you need the !el12_reg(p) check here?
