Yea. True. It makes the code even cleaner. Also we can avoid calling
recalc_intercepts every time we set or clear a bit inside the same
function(like init_vmcb).

Let me try to understand.

vmcb01 is &svm->vmcb->control;l
vmcb02 is &svm->nested.hsave->control
vmcb12 is &svm->nested.ctl;

The functions set_intercept and clr_intercept calls get_host_vmcb to get
the vmcb address.

static inline struct vmcb *get_host_vmcb(struct vcpu_svm *svm)
{
if (is_guest_mode(&svm->vcpu))
return svm->nested.hsave;
else
return svm->vmcb;
}

I need to study little bit when is_guest_mode Is on or off. Let me take a
look at.

Thanks
