What do you think we should be doing in response to these event check
IPIs?  I thought that there were hopes of improving interactivity of
single-cpu systems ...

I think your comments here are predicated on the assumption that BUG

in Xen, so I thought it was a waste of time to put in extra code.  Do
you think it might someday not be the case?
