Not your code, and completely benign since VM_EXIT_SAVE is never set, but I
don't like checking the VM_EXIT_SAVE_* flag as saving a field on VM-Exit has
zero impact on whether VM-Entry succeeds or fails. Same complaint on the PAT
field.

Tying into the previous patch, I think we should print both the effective EFER
and vmcs.EFER. The effective EFER is relevant for several consistency checks.
Maybe something like this?

pr_err("EFER= 0x%016llx ", effective_efer);
if (vmentry_ctl & VM_ENTRY_LOAD_IA32_EFER)
pr_cont("vmcs.EFER= 0x%016llx\n", vmcs_read64(GUEST_IA32_EFER));
else
pr_cont("vmcs.EFER not loaded\n")
