I thought only 'mask' is slow, since that has to wait for the completion,
but 'unmask' just involves sending the eventq request without having
to wait for it.

Yes.

I don't think it is correct that you cannot issue virtio requests from
atomic context, only that you cannot wait for the reply.

For 'unmask', there is no waiting, since the reply is the actual IRQ
event. For the others, the sequence makes sense.

I don't think it makes sense to optimize for the rare case that the
irq handler disables the irq, when that makes the common case
(irq remains unmasked and enabled) much slower.
