Maybe? I tried that at one point, but didn't like making the call to
nested_vmx_transition_tlb_flush() conditional. My intent is to have
the ...tlb_flush() call be standalone, i.e. logic that is common to all
nested transitions, so that someone can look at the code can easily
(relatively speaking) understand the basic rules for TLB flushing on
nested transitions.

I also tried the oppositie, i.e. putting the above code in an else-branch,
with nested_vmx_transition_tlb_flush() returning true if it requested a
flush. But that required updating vmx->nested.last_vpid in a separate
flow, which was quite awkward.

Doh, yes.
