Thanks (and, thanks :) ) -- from patch #2, looks like GICv2 is affected
too, and the patch seems to be fixing commit a9d853533cc1
("hw/intc/arm_gic: Switch to read/write callbacks with tx attributes",

Is that right? That commit was released with v2.4.0. Should I have
experienced the error? Is it KVM / hardware specific? What are the symptoms?

... I don't know the symptoms of the issue either that was fixed by
Guest crashes with unhandled data abort? (I.e., impossible not to notice.)
