Subject: [PATCH 00/43] VMX optimizations
Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 19:02:46 +0200
Message-ID: <1560445409-17363-1-git-send-email-pbonzini@redhat.com> (raw)

This is the outcome of the review of Sean's VMX optimization series,
with some coding style improvements (at least according to me :)
and conflicts resolved between the various series that he sent.

The result on nested vmexit.flat is about a 12% improvement on
vmexit speed:
