Since we are at here, do we need to protect KVM_SET_GSI_ROUTING in
general as well to make sure kernel APIC is there? Like:


diff --git a/virt/kvm/kvm_main.c b/virt/kvm/kvm_main.c
index 482612b..31141a7 100644
--- a/virt/kvm/kvm_main.c
+++ b/virt/kvm/kvm_main.c
@@ -3057,6 +3057,10 @@ static long kvm_vm_ioctl(struct file *filp,
struct kvm_irq_routing_entry *entries = NULL;

r = -EFAULT;
+ if (!irqchip_in_kernel(kvm))
+ goto out;
if (copy_from_user(&routing, argp, sizeof(routing)))
goto out;
r = -EINVAL;
