Intel IPIv target to accelerate unicast ipi process, not benefit to
broadcast performance.

As to IPI benchmark, it's not big different to test with large or small
scale of vCPUs. In essential, Normal IPI test try
to send ipi to any other online CPU in sequence. The cost on IPI process
itself should be similar.
