Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] KVM: nVMX: Fix virtual interrupt delivery injection 

From: Wanpeng Li <>

This patch fix bug reported in, 
after the patch applied, there is
some progress and the L2 can boot up, however, slowly. The original idea of this 
fix vid injection patch is from "Zhang, Yang Z" <>.

Interrupt which delivered by vid should be injected to L1 by L0 if current is in 
L1, or should be injected to L2 by L0 through the old injection way if L1 doesn't 
have set External-interrupt exiting bit. The current logic doen't consider these 
cases. This patch fix it by vid intr to L1 if current is L1 or L2 through old 
injection way if L1 doen't have External-interrupt exiting bit set.
