This patch messes with more stuff than it needs to. In particular, every place we VMCLEAR/VMPTRLD we expect the operation to succeed -- crashing on error is the most sensible thing to do. I don't see that returning error to the caller is helpful, and in fact you have callers who don't even check the error return. It keeps the interface to those functions simpler to have them return void and for them to bug out internally if they fail (as they currently do).
