Hi, Keir

This patch is fine to me, just one small comments: the note below the 
hvm_inject_hw_exception(TRAP*) should change to hvm_inject_hw_exception from 

--- a/xen/arch/x86/hvm/svm/nestedsvm.c  Fri May 25 08:21:25 2012 +0100
+++ b/xen/arch/x86/hvm/svm/nestedsvm.c  Fri May 25 09:45:00 2012 +0100
@@ -735,7 +735,7 @@ nsvm_vcpu_vmrun(struct vcpu *v, struct c
             "nsvm_vcpu_vmentry failed, injecting #UD\n");
-        hvm_inject_exception(TRAP_invalid_op, HVM_DELIVER_NO_ERROR_CODE, 0);
+        hvm_inject_hw_exception(TRAP_invalid_op, HVM_DELIVER_NO_ERROR_CODE);
         /* Must happen after hvm_inject_exception or it doesn't work right. */

And I'll add instruction length represented in 'struct hvm_trap', and correct 
the _trap.type in new function vmx_inject_trap() based on the restructuring.
