Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 1/3] KVM: SVM: use vmsave/vmload for saving/restoring
 additional host state

One quick comment while it's on my mind, I'll give this a proper gander tomorrow.

This needs to be 'unsigned long', using 'hpa_t' in vmsave() is wrong as the
instructions consume rAX based on effective address.  I wrote the function
comment for the vmsave() fix so that it applies to both VMSAVE and VMLOAD,
so this can be a simple fixup on application (assuming v5 isn't needed for
other reasons).
