Just use a mode of perf that doesn't use NMIs.
Interrupt off profiling is rarely needed if at all on modern kernels.
I tend to agree. But that's not my call.
(note 'perf kvm' will need adjustment if we make that change - likely
need to capture the interrupt during vmexit and dispatch it manually;
not sure if it's workable for svm at all)
