Before we discuss interrupt injection, I want to understand what this
is doing, and how this is doing it. And more precisely, I want to find
out how you solve the various problems described by Thomas here [1].

Assuming you solve these, you should model the guest memory access
similarly to what we do for stolen time. As for injecting an
interrupt, why can't this be a userspace thing?

Thanks,

M.
