Relying on the handlers to check kvm_need_cancel_enter_guest() will be
error prone and costly to maintain. I also don't like that it buries the
logic.

What about adding another flavor, e.g.:

exit_fastpath = vmx_exit_handlers_fastpath(vcpu);
if (exit_fastpath == EXIT_FASTPATH_CONT_RUN &&
kvm_need_cancel_enter_guest(vcpu))
exit_fastpath = EXIT_FASTPATH_NOP;

That would also allow you to enable preemption timer without first having
to add CONT_RUN, which would be a very good thing for bisection.
