So to sum-up: This matches what I mentioned in my previous emails right?
That vector 96 is not related, and the only issue here is that level-triggered interrupt handler for vector 80 is doing EOI before lowering the irq-line.
Which cause vector 80 to be injected in infinite loop.
And this is not even related to being a nested virtualization workload. It’s just an issue in Hyper-V (L1) interrupt handler for vector 80.

Therefore the only action-items are:
1) Microsoft to fix Hyper-V vector 80 interrupt handler to lower irq-line before EOI.
2) Patch QEMU IOAPIC implementation to have a mechanism similar to KVM to delay injection of level-triggered interrupt
in case we are injecting the same interrupt for X times in a row.
