KVM: SVM: Keep intercepting task switching with NPT enabled
AMD processors apparently have a bug in the hardware task switching support when NPT is enabled. If the task switch triggers a NPF, we can get wrong EXITINTINFO along with that fault. On resume, spurious exceptions may then be injected into the guest. We were able to reproduce this bug when our guest triggered #SS and the handler were supposed to run over a separate task with not yet touched stack pages. Work around the issue by continuing to emulate task switches even in NPT mode. Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com> Signed-off-by: Marcelo Tosatti <mtosatti@redhat.com>
