Yes. It is a little general.

How about this patch:

Subject: [PATCH] x86/kvm/vmx: Don't halt vcpu when L1 is injecting events to
L2

Although L2 is in halt state, it will be in the active state after
VM entry if the VM entry is vectoring. Halting the vcpu here means
the event won't be injected to L2 and this decision isn't reported
to L1. Thus L0 drops an event that should be injected to L2.

Because virtual interrupt delivery may wake L2 vcpu, if VID is enabled
and RVI > 0, do the same thing -- don't halt L2.
