This doesn't happen right now. What we may need to do is measure the cost of
needing to forward the interrupt to the correct CPU, in the case that the
VCPU is currently running on a different CPU, versus the cost of
reprogramming an IOAPIC register. Also important is to know how rapidly the
credit scheduler is moving VCPUs among CPUs, and hence the average number of
interrupts between movements.
