Thanks, Pierre.

For completion I want to add that one sees roughly 1 timer
restart per vcpu that gets kicked in my test scenario with
12 AP IRQ guests. The guests have 4 x 1, 4 x 4 and 4 x 8 vcpus
backed by 8 IFLs. Furthermore the 12 guests share 4 CEX5C cards
each configured with 3 AP queues. On the guest runs a single
threaded AP driver that performs RSA decryptions with CRT private
keys with a short 512 bit length to get many ops/s. That
run has no additional cpu load.
