WARNING on boot in Intel GVT-g guest

Bug Description

When booting Ubuntu Cosmic Cuttlefish 18.10 in an Intel GVT-g Virtual Machine, a kernel WARNING appears in dmesg, with the following:

[ 3.563734] WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 346 at drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_irq.c:161 gen3_assert_iir_is_zero+0x38/0xa0 [i915]

I have not noticed negative effects in the VM, but a kernel WARNING probably has relevance.

While I added a custom EDID to fix resolution, the WARNING happens without custom EDID set too. I will add information about the host in the next message.

Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade? Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.19 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

What causes this WARNING is the host kernel.

Using latest drm-tip (d63c50f2b014037b43c1c0f108c61e0a31ede3c1) in the host, there is no WARNING in the guest, while the WARNING happens when the host uses 4.18.0-12 (HWE 18.04 Edge). 4.15.0-42 does not support iGVT-g with dma-buf, so it's not useful to test.

It seems the results weren't dependent of the Linux kernel version on the guest: they were the same with 4.18.0-11, 4.18.0-12 and 4.19.5.
