KVM: VMX: blocked-by-sti must not defer NMI injections
Jan Kiszka [Tue, 11 May 2010 13:16:46 +0000 (15:16 +0200)]
As the processor may not consider GUEST_INTR_STATE_STI as a reason for
blocking NMI, it could return immediately with EXIT_REASON_NMI_WINDOW
when we asked for it. But as we consider this state as NMI-blocking, we
can run into an endless loop.

Resolve this by allowing NMI injection if just GUEST_INTR_STATE_STI is
active (originally suggested by Gleb). Intel confirmed that this is
safe, the processor will never complain about NMI injection in this
state.
