I checked that to by introducing a dummy char member in struct operand
that would have misaligned vec_val but, indeed, the compiler ensured
it's still 16 byte aligned.

If "next" means kvm/next
(i.e.git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm.git#next) here, the
whole series applies cleanly for me.
HEAD in kvm/next is 9a78197 "KVM: x86: remove unused variable from
kvm_task_switch()" here. Albeit the series was build against kvm/next
at the time as a81aba1 "KVM: VMX: Ignore segment G and D bits when
considering whether we can virtualize" was HEAD in this branch.

Could you please retry and show me the conflicts you get?


Regards,
Mathias
