And actually, I think the acknowledging should include the three steps to
set-ISR/update-PPR/clear-IRR.  (With APICv update PPR is not strictly
necessary, but it doesn't hurt either).

You cannot let the processor do these because it would deliver the interrupt
through the IDT,  but you still must do it in the hypervisor.

This gives this patch:

I think the right way to do it must be something like this; you cannot
do it just in nested_vmx_vmexit.  Testing is welcome since I don't have
easy access to APICv-capable hardware (it would take a few days).
