A better approach is to refactor need_emulation_on_page_fault() (the hook
that's just out of sight in this patch) into a more generic
kvm_x86_ops.is_emulatable() so that the latter can be used to kill emulation
everywhere, and for other reasons. E.g. TDX obviously shares very similar
logic, but SGX also adds a case where KVM can theoretically end up in an
emulator path without the ability to access the necessary guest state.

I have exactly such a prep patch (because SGX and TDX...), I'll get it posted
in the next day or two.
