Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 12/32] kvm: nVMX: VMCLEAR should not cause the
 vCPU to shut down

From: Jim Mattson <jmattson@...gle.com>

[ Upstream commit 587d7e72aedca91cee80c0a56811649c3efab765 ]

VMCLEAR should silently ignore a failure to clear the launch state of
the VMCS referenced by the operand.

[Changed "kvm_write_guest(vcpu->kvm" to "kvm_vcpu_write_guest(vcpu".]
