Subject[PATCH] KVM: x86: check PIR even for vCPUs with disabled APICv
After fixing the handling of POSTED_INTR_WAKEUP_VECTOR for vCPUs with
disabled APICv, take care of POSTED_INTR_VECTOR. The IRTE for an assigned
device can trigger a POSTED_INTR_VECTOR even if APICv is disabled on the
vCPU that receives it. In that case, the interrupt will just cause a
vmexit and leave the ON bit set together with the PIR bit corresponding
to the interrupt.

Right now, the interrupt would not be delivered until APICv is re-enabled.
However, fixing this is just a matter of always doing the PIR->IRR
synchronization, even if the vCPU does not have APICv enabled.

This is not a problem for performance, or if anything it is an
improvement. static_call_cond will elide the function call if APICv is
not present or disabled, or if (as is the case for AMD hardware) it does
not require a sync_pir_to_irr callback. And in the common case where
kvm_vcpu_apicv_active(vcpu) is true, one fewer check has to be performed.
