We've so far excluded instruction aborts from the delivery of a virtual
SError. You now decide to inject an SError in all cases, but your commit
message doesn't explain *why* this is a sensible thing to do.

I'm not saying that this patch is wrong (the IABT handling predates RAS
by several years and was designed to deal with with badly behaved guest
rather than flaky HW), but I'd like to understand why you think it is right.

Thanks,

M.
