The mutex is unlocked prior to return at the end of the function.

I think what you're saying is something like this:

if (!test_kvm_cpu_feat(kvm, KVM_S390_VM_CPU_FEAT_AP))
return -EOPNOTSUPP;

kvm->arch.crypto.apie = (attr->addr) ? 1 : 0;

I can make arguments for doing this either way, but since the attribute
is will most likely only be set by an AP device in userspace, I suppose
it makes sense to allow setting of the attribute if the AP feature is
installed. It certainly makes sense for the dedicated implementation.

Assuming the scenario plays out as you described, why would the other vcpus
be using the old ECA.28 value if the kvm_s390_vcpu_crypto_setup() function
is executed for each of them to set the new value for ECA.28?

Unless I am missing something in the scenario you described, it seems that
the reason the exit_sie(vcpu) function is called is to ensure that the vcpus
that are already running acquire the new attribute values changed by this
function when they are restored to SIE. Of course, my assumption is that
the kvm_arch_vcpu_setup() function - which calls the
kvm_s390_vcpu_crypto_setup()
function - is invoked when the vcpu is restored to SIE.
