Ugh, except that commit completely broke tick-based accounting, on both Intel
and AMD.  With guest_exit_irqoff() being called immediately after VM-Exit, any
tick that happens after IRQs are disabled will be accounted to the host.  E.g.
on Intel, even an IRQ VM-Exit that has already been acked by the CPU isn't
processed until kvm_x86_ops.handle_exit_irqoff(), well after PF_VCPU has been
cleared.

CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN=y should still work (I didn't bother to verify).

Thomas, any clever ideas?  Handling IRQs in {vmx,svm}_vcpu_enter_exit() isn't an
option as KVM hasn't restored enough state to handle an IRQ, e.g. PKRU and XCR0
are still guest values.  Is it too heinous to fudge PF_VCPU across KVM's
"pending" IRQ handling?  E.g. this god-awful hack fixes the accounting:
