Almost any pv feature is broken with QEMU if kernel_irqchip=off. I
wouldn't bother and I am seriously thinking of dropping all support for
that, including:

- just injecting #UD for MOV from/to CR8 unless lapic_in_kernel()

- make KVM_INTERRUPT fail unless irqchip_in_kernel(), so that
KVM_INTERRUPT is only used to inject EXTINT with kernel_irqchip=split
