SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 10/26] arm64: kvm: Unmask PMR before entering guest

You could add to the commit description how this works overall,
something along the lines of:

We need to make sure that all maskable interrupts are masked from the
time we call local_irq_disable() in the main run loop, and remain so
until we call local_irq_enable() after returning from the guest, and we
need to ensure that we see no interrupts at all (including pseudo-NMIs)
in the middle of the VM world-switch, while at the same time we need to
ensure we exit the guest when there are interrupts for the host.

We can accomplish this with pseudo-NMIs enabled by:
(1) local_irq_disable: set the priority mask
(2) enter guest: set PSTATE.I
(3) clear the priority mask
(4) eret to guest
(5) exit guest: set the priotiy mask
clear PSTATE.I (and restore other host PSTATE bits)
(6) local_irq_enable: clear the priority mask.

Also, took me a while to realize that when we come back from the guest,
we call local_daif_restore with DAIF_PROCCTX_NOIRQ, which actually does
both of the things in (5).

nit: you could consider moving the non-vhe part into a new
kvm_arm_nvhe_guest_enter, for symmetry with the vhe part.

Otherwise looks good to me:
