Hi Paolo,
I reconsidered the comment in vcpu_enter_guest() and think it may don't need to change. The original comment as below:
* 2) For APICv, we should set ->mode before checking PIR.ON. This
* pairs with the memory barrier implicit in pi_test_and_set_on
* (see vmx_deliver_posted_interrupt).

I think "before checking PIR.ON" is mean "before checking PID.PIR and PID.ON". Because there indeed have this two flag check in vmx_deliver_posted_interrupt() function. If PID.ON is already Set at the time of hardware posting an interrupt to PIR field, notification event is not generated (from VT-d spec 9.12).
