Subject[PATCH] KVM: SVM: Remove bogus WARN and emulation if guest #GPs with EFER.SVME=1
Immediately reinject #GP (if intercepted) if the VMware backdoor is
disabled and the instruction is not affected by the erratum that causes
bogus #GPs on SVM instructions. It is completely reasonable for the
guest to take a #GP(0) with EFER.SVME=1, e.g. when probing an MSR, and
attempting emulation on an unknown instruction is obviously not good.
