confused, AFAIK IAM is used to allow interrupt for the host
not for the guest.

!! sorry to have introduce this confusion.
You did it in the right order.
I should have not send these comments after I gave my R-B

!! Sorry, you were right.
We must re-enable interrupt before kicking the vcpu, as you did, or the
vcpu could go to wait before it gets the interrupt.

I still think tis assumption is right: We should not set the IAM during
the kick.

Still OK with my R-B, as long as w do not set IAM during the kicking.
