Yeah, but this distinction does not make sense here, as none of the #VC
handlers C functions run on the actual #VC IST stack. The from-kernel
function might run on the fall-back stack (not really possible today
unless the hypervisor does something nasty). And the difference between
the fall-back stack and the actual IST stack is, that on the fall-back
stack nesting #VC exceptions is still supported.

Okay, I will change this according your comments.

Thanks,
