> But currently 'fast_resume' is called after 'hdec_out'

It should be "But currently 'full_resume' is called after 'hdec_out'"

Sorry for the confusion.

Title  : [XenPPC] fast_resume instead of full_resume after hdec_out

In handling hdec exception, non-volatile registers are saved because
context_switch() may be called in the do_softirq(). The fact that we
reach to 'hdec_out' means that there has been no context_switch()
called. But currently 'fast_resume' is called after 'hdec_out'

I think there seems to be no reason to restore non-volatiles at this
point. Becasue MSR_EE is alwyas 0, 'fast_resume' will be enough like the
following. It seems to work well in our HW. Please give me comments or
