You should be checking and clearing only vcpu0's evtchn_upcall_pending and
evtchn_pending_sel fields. Other vcpu's equivalent fields are currently
unused for HVM guests. It is essential that you clear evtchn_upcall_pending
-- that is the 'virtual interrupt wire' connected to the virtual PIC's
level-triggered input pin.

Apart from those caveats, all should work fine with no spurious interrupts.
