One of the PPC configs failed today.  An automated bisect leads
to the following commit:

commit 1704a81ccebc69b5223220df97cde8a645271828
Author: Paul Mackerras <>

    KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Use msgsnd for IPIs to other cores on POWER9

    On POWER9, the msgsnd instruction is able to send interrupts to
    other cores, as well as other threads on the local core.  Since
    msgsnd is generally simpler and faster than sending an IPI via the
    XICS, we use msgsnd for all IPIs sent by KVM on POWER9.
