Subject: Re: Unexpected interrupt received in Guest OS when booting after
 "system_reset"

Hi Marc,

The patch works. I tested for 1.5 hour and 52 VM resets. There were 16 times that a virtual LPI left in the ap_list (seen by an additional printk) during reset and we never saw "Unexpected interrupt received" any more.

Just a minor comment: how about replacing /vcpu->arch.vgic_cpu./ with /vgic_cpu->/ in the lock/unlock code line, to reduce some words?

Thanks,

Heyi
