KVM: PPC: Pass through program interrupts
Alexander Graf [Sun, 10 Jan 2010 02:27:32 +0000 (03:27 +0100)]
When we get a program interrupt in guest kernel mode, we try to emulate the
instruction.

If that doesn't fail, we report to the user and try again - at the exact same
instruction pointer. So if the guest kernel really does trigger an invalid
instruction, we loop forever.

So let's better go and forward program exceptions to the guest when we don't
know the instruction we're supposed to emulate.
