I will move the get_host_vmcb inside the caller and then call
vmcb_set_intercept/vmcb_clr_intercept/vmcb_is_intercept directly.
I will re post the series. This will change the whole series a little bit.

Jim has already reviewed some of the patches. But I probably cannot use
"Reviewed-by" if I change the patches too much. thanks
