Subject: [PATCH] KVM: VMX: Fix and tweak the comments for VM-Enter
Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2019 13:09:31 -0700
Message-ID: <20190815200931.18260-1-sean.j.christopherson@intel.com> (raw)

Fix an incorrect/stale comment regarding the vmx_vcpu pointer, as guest
registers are now loaded using a direct pointer to the start of the
register array.

Opportunistically add a comment to document why the vmx_vcpu pointer is
needed, its consumption via 'call vmx_update_host_rsp' is rather subtle.
