IMHO gib alerts are all about not loosing initiative. I.e. avoiding
substantially delayed delivery of interrupts due to vCPUs in wait
state.

Thus we must avoid letting go before setting up stuff (gisa.iam under
consideration of gisa ipm, gisa.next_alert, and gib.alert_list_origin)
so that we can react on the next interrupt (if necessary).

On the other hand, getting more gisa alerts than necessary is not
fatal -- better avoided if not too much hassle of course.

Bottom line is, while it may be critical that the IAM changes implied
by register take place immediately, unregister is a different story.
