Hi Eric,

One query and a comment below.

Out of curiosity, have you come across systems that have per-cpu
doorbells? I couldn't find a system that'd help solidify my
understanding on it's usage.

Although you've got the comment above, 'safe' doesn't quite convey it's
purpose. Can this be renamed to something more descriptive -
'intr_remapping' or 'intr_isolation' perhaps?

Thanks,
