Lemme see:

void kvm_arch_on_sigbus_vcpu(CPUState *c, int code, void *addr)

/* If we get an action required MCE, it has been injected by KVM
* while the VM was running. An action optional MCE instead should
* be coming from the main thread, which qemu_init_sigbus identifies
* as the "early kill" thread.
assert(code == BUS_MCEERR_AR || code == BUS_MCEERR_AO);


kvm_mce_inject(cpu, paddr, code);

in that function:

if (code == BUS_MCEERR_AR) {
status |= MCI_STATUS_AR | 0x134;
mcg_status |= MCG_STATUS_EIPV;
} else {
status |= 0xc0;
mcg_status |= MCG_STATUS_RIPV;

That looks like a valid RIP bit to me. Then cpu_x86_inject_mce() gets
that mcg_status and injects it into the guest.

So I can't follow your claim - qemu does handle RIPV just fine, it
