I would also mention in commit message that one can see this is also
true in KVM’s vLAPIC code. i.e. __apic_accept_irq() can call
kvm_x86_ops->deliver_posted_interrupt() only in case deliver-mode is
either “Fixed” or “LowPriority”.

With some small improvements I written inline below:

I recommend we will chose to print here a string that is different than the !kvm_intr_is_single_vcpu()
case to make it easier to diagnose which case exactly failed.
