Indeed I missed the warning. Of course the return value is in %rax so,
despite the patch being shitty (it is), it is also true that it
*happens* to pass the corresponding unit test.

Not a particularly high bar to clear I admit, but enough to explain the
mistake and ensure it doesn't happen again; I have now added "ccflags-y
+= -Werror" to the KVM makefile.

Oh come on.

Fair enough, I removed the following patches from the pull request and
will resend:

KVM: nVMX: Emulate MTF when performing instruction emulation
KVM: nVMX: Rename nested_ept_get_cr3() to nested_ept_get_eptp()
KVM: nVMX: Rename EPTP validity helper and associated variables
KVM: nVMX: Drop unnecessary check on ept caps for execute-only
KVM: Provide kvm_flush_remote_tlbs_common()
KVM: MIPS: Drop flush_shadow_memslot() callback
KVM: MIPS: Replace all the kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() references
KVM: MIPS: Define arch-specific kvm_flush_remote_tlbs()

The first one is a bug fix, but since it's the one that caused all the
mess I guess it's not really a good idea to argue about it.
