>I prefer the current code, i.e. the fall through. This code is already burdened with a fall through, from #BP->#DB, and IMO the fall through makes it more obvious that the vcpu->guest_debug checks are corner cases, while everything else is handled by common logic.
Yeh, it looks better this way. But from a different perspective, "return turn" here indicates #BP and #DB need do vcpu->guest_debug checks, while others not.
