You're right. If we start a migration when the PTZ has just been set by
the SW, then we will miss it on the destination side.

So for instance in the last KVM unit test of my series
(https://lore.kernel.org/kvmarm/20191216140235.10751-17-eric.auger@redhat.com/),
in test_its_pending_migration(), if you kick the migration before
enabling LPI's at redist level, you shouldn't see any LPI hitting on the
target which is theoretically wrong. So implementing a uaccess_read()
would be better I think.

Thanks

Eric
