Waow. I don't understand everything (and especially how you find that
the problem was here) but it works now.

 I have another question, why did you remove VMXASSIST? I saw that you
replaced all invocation to VMXASSIST by only one call to
vmx_goto_realmode() in arch/x86/hvm/svm/x86_64/exits.S. Are there some
links to any discussion about this choice?

Thanks for your help,
