SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] KVM: SVM: Add irqchip_split() checks before enabling AVIC

Yeah, hacking TMR to get the VM exit could result in future bugs.
We have to push split irqchip as the deafult in userspaces with this
change.

The other place used kvm_vcpu_apicv_active() instead of checking
irqchip_split() directly, so I think it would be better to be consistent
and do it here too.
I'd also like if this workaround used !irqchip_split() exactly once.

There is going to be too much of those. pr_debug_once() would be a
better notification. We can also report it in svm_get_enable_apicv().

Seems like we want !kvm_vcpu_apicv_active() here too.

(separate bug: refresh should be able to enable avic as well.)

thanks.
