What if the cpu goes down just before wrmsrl()?
I mean, hv_cpu_die() will reassign another cpu, but this thread will be
resumed on some other cpu and will write cpu number which is at that
moment already down?

(probably I miss something)

And I presume it's guaranteed that during hv_cpu_die() no other cpu may
go down:
:	new_cpu = cpumask_any_but(cpu_online_mask, cpu);
:	re_ctrl.target_vp = hv_vp_index[new_cpu];
:	wrmsrl(HV_X64_MSR_REENLIGHTENMENT_CONTROL, *((u64 *)&re_ctrl));
