That's not in fact quite true; all you have to do is send the IPI.
Having one sibling IPI the other sibling carries enough guarantees that
the receiving sibling will not execute any further guest instructions.

That is, you don't have to wait on the VMExit to complete; you can just
IPI and get on with things. Now, this is still expensive, But it is
heaps better than doing a full sync up between siblings.
