CVS commit: src/sys/arch/xen/xen
Module Name: src
Committed By: cherry

hypervisor_set_ipending() should not set the pending flag across cpus. The
reason for this is that the pending flag update is not atomic, or protected by
a lock. Since its current (mis)use in evtchn_do_event() across cpus is to
notify the remote cpu of an interrupt, we use hypervisor_send_event() instead,
to trigger an event on the remote cpu, which in turn invokes evtchn_do_event()
on that cpu and DTRT on it.
On the local cpu, we protect hypervisor_set_ipending() from re-entry via cli().
Remove a redundant and unprotected call to hypervisor_set_ipending().
Thanks to jym@ for spotting this discrepancy while reviewing a related patch.
