Subject: Re: [PATCH v1 1/2] kvm: arm64: handle single-step during SError
 exceptions

nit: this is not entirely accurate wording comparing with the ARM ARM,
which says that the step would be completed, but you'll now have both a
pending debug exception and a pending SError interrupt at the same time,
and the architecture doesn't prevent the SError from being taken first.

I can fix this up on commit though.
