By default kvm Linux guest uses x2apic, so APIC_ACCESS_ADDR mechanism
is not used since no MMIO access to APIC is ever done. Have you tested
this with "-cpu modelname,-x2apic" qemu flag?

Shouldn't you make KVM_REQ_APIC_PAGE_RELOAD request here?

If you do not use kvm->arch.apic_access_page to get current address why not drop it entirely?

You forgot to drop put_page(kvm->arch.apic_access_page); from x86.c again.
