Subject[PATCH v2 0/6] KVM: x86: cleanup and speedup for APICv
These are the fixed patches that now pass vmx.flat.  The issue in
"KVM: x86: do not scan IRR twice on APICv vmentry" was that,
in v1 of the patches, kvm_cpu_get_interrupt did not scan IRR
at all if it found PIR.ON=0. This is now fixed in patches 4 and 5.

Another latent bug has to be fixed in patch 2. The patch also
highlights the maze that check_nested_events has become. Fixing
that is left for later.

The patches are on top of the (non-APICv-related) KVM_REQ_EVENT
patches from this morning. According to kvm-unit-tests, patch 6 speeds
up self-IPIs (if not done through the accelerated self-IPI MSR) by 5-10%.


Paolo Bonzini (6):
KVM: vmx: clear pending interrupts on KVM_SET_LAPIC
kvm: nVMX: move nested events check to kvm_vcpu_running
KVM: x86: preparatory changes for APICv cleanups
KVM: vmx: move sync_pir_to_irr from apic_find_highest_irr to callers
KVM: x86: do not scan IRR twice on APICv vmentry
kvm: x86: do not use KVM_REQ_EVENT for APICv interrupt injection
