Hi James,
Thanks a lot for your review and comments.

For the CPUs without the v8.2 RAS Extensions, its ESR is always 0, we only can inject a SError with ESR 0 to guest, cannot set its ESR.
About how about to use the KVM_GET/SET_VCPU_EVENTS, I will check the code, and consider your suggestion at the same time.
The IOCTL KVM_GET/SET_VCPU_EVENTS has been used by X86.

Ok, thanks for your suggestion, will split it.

To make this patch simple and small, I add it in patch 6.
