You remove a set_time/stop_timer pair. Is this because it was just to handle
arbitrary delay in calling hvm_dirq_assist() (which should no longer be
possible as we use a tasklet)?

That makes no sense. The function has been implemented (and used) in its
existing form for a long time. Why would it suddenly break on ia64?
