[PATCH v3 0/3] xen/x86: implement NMI continuation

Move sending of a virq event for oprofile to the local vcpu from NMI
to normal interrupt context.

This has been tested with a small test patch using the continuation
framework of patch 1 for all NMIs and doing a print to console in
the continuation handler.

Version 1 of this small series was sent to the security list before.

Changes in V3:
- switched to self-IPI instead of softirq
- added patch 3

Juergen Gross (3):
  xen/x86: add nmi continuation framework
  xen/oprofile: use set_nmi_continuation() for sending virq to guest
  xen/x86: issue pci_serr error message via NMI continuation
