want interface for posted-interrupt-request IPIs
Newer hypervisors (read: bhyve) can use Intel's APICv functionality to reduce the number of APIC-related guest exits by injecting interrupts into the guest via a posted-interrupt-request IPI. Rather than burdening that logic with knowledge of how IPIs are allocated/sent in our APIC modules, it would be nice to provide simple functions via the PSM to accomplish the task. This work is a combination of OS-6548 and OS-6837 in SmartOS.
