It does on x86.  The relationship between the APIC and the core is
synchronous - the APIC presents the interrupt, the core grabs is when it
is ready (interrupt flag, etc.) and signals the APIC it has done so.
The APIC then clears the interrupt from the interrupt request register
and sets it in the interrupt status register.  This sequence has to be
done while the vcpu is stopped, since we don't have access to the
interrupt flag otherwise.
