Subject[RFC PATCH 7/8] KVM: i8254: Remove need for irq ack notifier
Date
From: Julian Stecklina <jsteckli@amazon.de>

ACK notifiers don't work with AMD AVIC when the PIT interrupt is
delivered as edge-triggered fixed interrupt via the IOAPIC. AMD
processors cannot exit on EOI for these interrupts. The ACK notifiers do
work when the interrupt is delivered via PIC as ExtINT, because the ACK
comes as PIO write that KVM sees.

Change the PIT code to not rely on the ACK notifiers. The IRQ ACK
notifier in the PIT emulation re-schedules pit->expired to reinject any
pending PIT interrupt. This seems useless, because we can pulse the PIT
interrupt even when the interrupt is not ACKed yet. This means any timer
expiry when the interrupt was being handled by the guest, will cause an
interrupt to be injected automatically when the interrupt is ACKed.
