KVM: improve comment on rcu use in irqfd_deassign
The RCU use in kvm_irqfd_deassign is tricky: we have rcu_assign_pointer but no synchronize_rcu: synchronize_rcu is done by kvm_irq_routing_update which we share a spinlock with. Fix up a comment in an attempt to make this clearer. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>
