I prefer KVM's names even though they diverge from the SDM. The "window
exiting" terminology is very literal, which is desirable for the SDM
because it doesn't leave any wiggle room. But for software, IMO the
"event pending" terminology is preferable as it's more descriptive of the
intended use of the control, e.g. KVM sets VIRTUAL_{INTR,NMI}_PENDING when
it has a virtual event to inject and clears it after injecting said event.
