How do the traces of the non-working bare-metal SGI transmission differ from those issued by Linux guests? And then I would use gdb on qemu, stepping through the SGI transmission code to see where it branches differently under bare-metal workload. Usually, this reveals rather quickly why QEMU decides not to deliver some interrupt because of bit X having the wrong value or state Y not being reached.
