[Xen-devel] use tasklet to handle init/sipi?

Hi, Keir,

I am looking into a issue and found cs:17457 changes to use tasklet to handle 
init and sipi. And the comments only said "clean up". I wonder is there any 
special reason to use tasklet to handle it? If no, I will send a patch to call 
handler directly instead via tasklet.
The background is that with APICv, it assume all apic write is succeed and 
don't care the return value of vlapic_reg_write(). But the above logic need the 
caller to check return value. This obviously will break APICv.
