If I am reading the code correctly, _TIF_PATCH_PENDING is not a part of
EXIT_TO_GUESTMODE_WORK, so the handling code here would not be called on
any arch as of now.

I also think that _TIF_PATCH_PENDING must not be handled here generally.
It could break consistency guarantees when live patching KVM (and we do
that from time to time).

Adding live-patching ML to CC.
