Assuming Radim's comment (13db77347db1) is correct, the change in
3159d36ad799 looks wrong and your patch restores the status
quo. Actually, kvm_set_msi_irq() always sets irq->level = 1 so checking
it is pointless.

(but it is actually possible that there's a buggy userspace out there
which expects EOI notifications; we won't find out unless we try to fix
the bug).
