Not part of that patch, but is checking cpu_present_mask correct here?
If so then this really lacks a comment for the casual reader.

But, what happens in the case that mask == cpu_present_mask and
exclude_self == true?

AFAICT it ends up sending the IPI to all CPUs including self:

	if (!nr_bank)
		ipi_arg->vp_set.format = HV_GENERIC_SET_ALL;

Not entirely correct, right?

Thanks,
