Not for these patches; they stopped crashing only yesterday and I
cleaned them up and send them out.

The previous version; which was more horrible; but L1TF complete, was
between OK-ish and horrible depending on the number of VMEXITs a
workload had.

If there were close to no VMEXITs, it beat smt=off, if there were lots
of VMEXITs it was far far worse. Supposedly hosting people try their
very bestest to have no VMEXITs so it mostly works for them (with the
obvious exception of single VCPU guests).

It's just that people have been bugging me for this crap; and I figure
I'd post it now that it's not exploding anymore and let others have at.
