After checking codes, there is one issue to call vcpu_is_preempted.
There are two spin loops in qspinlock_paravirt.h. One loop in
'pv_wait_node' calls vcpu_is_preempted. But another loop in
'pv_wait_head_or_lock' does not call vcpu_is_preempted. It also does
not call any other ops of 'pv_lock_ops' in the loop. So I am afraid
we have to add one more ops in 'pv_lock_ops' to do this.
