Right; I'd still love to kill KVM_ASYNC_PF_SEND_ALWAYS though, even if
we do the save/restore in do_nmi(). That is some wild brain melt. Also,
AFAIK none of the distros are actually shipping a PREEMPT=y kernel
anyway, so killing it shouldn't matter much.

If people want to recover that, I'd suggest they sit down and create a
sane paravirt interface for this.
