From: "Gautham R. Shenoy" <ego@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

The code that handles the case when we receive a H_DOORBELL interrupt
has a comment which says "Hypervisor doorbell - exit only if host IPI
flag set".  However, the current code does not actually check if the
host IPI flag is set.  This is due to a comparison instruction that
got missed.

As a result, the current code performs the exit to host only
if some sibling thread or a sibling sub-core is exiting to the
host.  This implies that, an IPI sent to a sibling core in
(subcores-per-core != 1) mode will be missed by the host unless the
sibling core is on the exit path to the host.

This patch adds the missing comparison operation which will ensure
that when HOST_IPI flag is set, we unconditionally exit to the host.
