It's in hvm_do_resume() because, for one, that's the place that was
suggested (or at least confirmed when I've proposed it for such things)
on this list back when I wrote the code. And then it's here because
vmx_do_things()-type functions are, well, VMX, and I had hoped that by
choosing hvm-prefixed functions I'd get SVM support for free.

As for the handle_hvm_io_completion(v) return, my understanding was that
that would eventually cause another exit, and eventually we'd get to the
code below once the IO part is done.


Thanks,
Razvan
