For the moment it is:

5676: fb sti
5677: 48 8b 85 f8 fe ff ff mov 0xfffffffffffffef8(%rbp),%rax
567e: 8b 80 10 0c 00 00 mov 0xc10(%rax),%eax
5684: 8d 50 01 lea 0x1(%rax),%edx
5687: 48 8b 85 f8 fe ff ff mov 0xfffffffffffffef8(%rbp),%rax
568e: 89 90 10 0c 00 00 mov %edx,0xc10(%rax)
5694: 65 48 8b 04 25 00 00 mov %gs:0x0,%rax
569b: 00 00
569d: 48 89 45 a8 mov %rax,0xffffffffffffffa8(%rbp)
56a1: 48 8b 45 a8 mov 0xffffffffffffffa8(%rbp),%rax
56a5: 48 89 45 b0 mov %rax,0xffffffffffffffb0(%rbp)
56a9: 48 8b 45 b0 mov 0xffffffffffffffb0(%rbp),%rax
56ad: 48 89 c2 mov %rax,%rdx
56b0: 8b 42 14 mov 0x14(%rdx),%eax
56b3: 83 e0 ef and $0xffffffffffffffef,%eax
56b6: 89 42 14 mov %eax,0x14(%rdx)
So I think it is out of the interrupt shadow... but you're right I will resend
the patch adding barrier() (because in futur gcc can behave differently),
removing the part already added by Ingo and copying kvm-devel.
