Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 03/22] KVM: SVM: immediately inject INTR vmexit

Sorry for reporting this late but I just found out that this commit
breaks Hyper-V 2016 on KVM on SVM completely (always hangs on boot). I
haven't investigated it yet (well, this is Windows, you know...) but
what's usually different about Hyper-V is that unlike KVM/Linux it has
handlers for some hardware interrupts in the guest and not in the
hypervisor.
