Yes, but the description of a0 and a1 is not accurate. Something like

a0: lower part of the bitmap of destination APIC IDs
a1: higher part of the bitmap of destination APIC IDs
....

The hypercall lets a guest send multicast IPIs, with at most 128
128 destinations per hypercall in 64-bit mode and 64 vCPUs per
hypercall in 32-bit mode. The destinations are represented by a bitmap
contained in the first two arguments (a0 and a1). Bit 0 of a0
corresponds to the APIC ID in the third argument (a2), bit 1 corresponds
to the APIC ID a2+1, and so on.

Thanks,

Paolo
