Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] fix emulation error on Windows bootup
This series intended to fix (again) a bug that was a subject of the 
following change:

6ea6e84 ("KVM: x86: inject exceptions produced by x86_decode_insn")

Suddenly, that fix had a couple mistakes. First, ctxt->have_exception was
not set if fault happened during instruction decoding. Second, returning
value of inject_emulated_instruction was used to make the decision to
reenter guest, but this could happen iff on nested page fault, that is not
the scope where this bug could occur.



- do sanity check in caller code
- drop patch, that moved emulation_type() function

Jan Dakinevich (2):
KVM: x86: always stop emulation on page fault
KVM: x86: set ctxt->have_exception in x86_decode_insn()
