One other thing that's been bothering me; you mention in a later email that
this bug resulting in a crash during boot. The low timestamps also suggest
the system is fairly early in its bringup.

But KVM only does VMXON when it actually creates a VM[*]. During boot I
would expect the bug to result in KVM being incorrectly loaded/enabled, but
that alone wouldn't trigger a crash.

I assume/hope your system is automatically running some form of virt
process at boot? Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just
suprising and I want to make sure there's not something really funky going
on.

[*] KVM also does VMXON when hotplugging a CPU, but only if KVM has active
VMs, and the IPI callback above indicates this isn't the hotplug case.
