Subject: [PATCH v2] KVM: VMX: Remove redundant handling of bus lock vmexit

Hardware may or may not set exit_reason.bus_lock_detected on BUS_LOCK
VM-Exits. Dealing with KVM_RUN_X86_BUS_LOCK in handle_bus_lock_vmexit
could be redundant when exit_reason.basic is EXIT_REASON_BUS_LOCK.

We can remove redundant handling of bus lock vmexit. Force Setting
exit_reason.bus_lock_detected in handle_bus_lock_vmexit(), and deal with
KVM_RUN_X86_BUS_LOCK only in vmx_handle_exit().
