[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/2] vmx/hap: optimize CR4 trapping


Following two-patch series optimize CR4 access for vmx/hap.

I couldn't figure out a similar approach for AMD, since according to
section 15.9 (Instruction Intercepts), you either intercept all access
to CR4 or none. In any case a similar optimization for AMD can always be
added later.

Thanks, Roger.
