During shutdown the IOAPIC trigger mode is reset to edge triggered
while the vfio-pci INTx is still registered with a resampler.
This allows us to get into an infinite loop:

ioapic_set_irq
  -> ioapic_lazy_update_eoi
  -> kvm_ioapic_update_eoi_one
  -> kvm_notify_acked_irq
  -> kvm_notify_acked_gsi
  -> (via irq_acked fn ptr) irqfd_resampler_ack
  -> kvm_set_irq
  -> (via set fn ptr) kvm_set_ioapic_irq
  -> kvm_ioapic_set_irq
  -> ioapic_set_irq

Commit 7faab2faca0c acknowledges that this recursion loop exists
and tries to avoid it at the call to ioapic_lazy_update_eoi, but at
this point the scenario is already set, we have an edge interrupt with
resampler on the same gsi.

Fortunately, the only user of irq ack notifiers (in addition to resamplefd)
is i8254 timer interrupt reinjection.  These are edge-triggered, so in
principle they would need the call to kvm_ioapic_update_eoi_one from
ioapic_lazy_update_eoi, but they already disable AVIC(*), so they don't
need the lazy EOI behavior.  Therefore, remove the call to
kvm_ioapic_update_eoi_one from ioapic_lazy_update_eoi.

This fixes CVE-2020-27152.  Note that this issue cannot happen with
SR-IOV assigned devices because virtual functions do not have INTx,
only MSI.
