This doesn't actually make sense. Nested_run_pending should only be
set between L1 doing a VMLAUNCH/VMRESUME and the first instruction
executing in L2. That is extremely unlikely at a restore point.
To deal with nested_run_pending and nested save/restore,
nested_run_pending should be set to 1 before calling
enter_vmx_non_root_mode, as it was prior to commit 7af40ad37b3f. That
means that it has to be cleared when emulating VM-entry to the halted
state (prior to calling kvm_vcpu_halt). And all of the from_vmentry
arguments that Paolo added when rebasing commit cf8b84f48a59 should be
removed, so that nested_run_pending is propagated correctly duting a
It should be possible to eliminate this strange little wart, but I
haven't looked deeply into it.
