HI, Quan.
Is there a situation that we need set VCPU_KICK_SOFTIRQ. For example,
after vmx_intr_assist(), a interrupt happened and its handler called this
function to deliver interrupt to current vcpu. In that case, the interrupt
would not be injected to guest before this VM-entry for we don't generate a
softirq and don't send a self-IPI to current vcpu.
