Is it always OK to erase the notification, even in case an unrelated
event such as interrupt was the source of wakeup?

Note i am only asking whether it is OK to lose a notification, not
requesting a change to atomic test-and-clear.

Yes.. got your point.
IMO, this is the only (safe) place where it can clear
kicked(pv_unhalted) flag. Since it is going to be runnable.

and you are also right in having concern on unwanted clear of flag
since that would result in vcpu /vm hangs eventually.

Hope I did not miss anything.

It would be nice to have a comment explaining it.

Sure will do that
