SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/6] KVM: x86: do not scan IRR twice on APICv vmentry

Btw. a v1 discussion revolved about the need to have
vmx_hwapic_irr_update() here when the maximal IRR should always be in
RVI, and, uh, I didn't follow up (negligible attention span) ...

There is one place where that doesn't hold: we don't update RVI after a
EXTERNAL_INTERRUPT nested VM exit without VM_EXIT_ACK_INTR_ON_EXIT, but
IRR has likely changed. Isn't that the problem?
