Ok - this series is looking much clearer now.  Thanks.

Acked-by: Andrew Cooper <andrew.cooper3@xxxxxxxxxx> (although there is
one trivial style issue in patch 1 I can fix on commit).

You are still waiting for SVM acks on patches 1 and 3 by the looks of

One thing I note however is that patch 2 and 3 both turn on intercepts
and have no way of turning them back off.  This appears to be consistent
with the Intel side of things, but it is suboptimal for the guest when
an introspection agent detaches.

For the CPUID/MSR policy side of things, Jan has talked me in to
changing how cpuid_policy_updated() works, and implementing it as a
recalculation of the intercepts on the return-to-guest path.  It occurs
to me that this usefully extends to changes requested by the
introspection agent.
