What I mean is: does the code actually do what you think it does if TF is set?  Right now, as I understand it, the KVM emulation code has a bug in which some emulated faults also inject #DB despite the fact that the instruction faulted, and the #DB seems to take precedence over the original fault.  This confuses the guest.
