A nested #PF is triggered during L0 emulating instruction for L2. However, it
doesn't consider we should not break L1's vmlauch/vmresme. This patch fixes
it by queuing the #PF exception instead ,requesting an immediate VM exit from
L2 and keeping the exception for L1 pending for a subsequent nested VM exit.

This should actually work all the time, making vmx_inject_page_fault_nested
totally unnecessary.  However, that's not working yet, so this patch can work
around the issue in the meanwhile.
