Subject[PATCH v4 0/2] Enable PV qspinlock for Hyper-V
- To avoid possible hang issue (if hv_qlock_wait can be
interrupted, kick may happen before reading HV_X64_MSR_GUEST_IDLE
so that hang happens), disable interrupt before READ_ONCE, then
restore it after reading HV_X64_MSR_GUEST_IDLE.
- use "Hyper-V: " as the message prefix
- remove unnecessary header files
- remove unnecessary check in 'hv_qlock_wait'
- fix compilation error on different platforms

- compile hv_spinlock.c only when CONFIG_PARAVIRT_SPINLOCKS enabled
- merge v1 patch 2/3 to single patch
- remove part of the boilerplate in hv_spinlock.c
- declare hv_pvspin as __initdata
- remove spin_wait_info and hv_notify_long_spin_wait because
SpinWaitInfo is a standalone feature.
- add comments for reading HV_X64_MSR_GUEST_IDLE
- replace pr_warn to pr_info
- use pr_fmt instead of the 'hv:' prefix
- register callback function for smp_ops.smp_prepare_boot_cpu
to initialize hyper-v spinlock

This patch adds the necessary Hyper-V specific code to allow
PV qspinlock work on Hyper-V.

In wait callback function, read HV_X64_MSR_GUEST_IDLE MSR
to trigger the guest's transition to the idle power state
which can be exited by an IPI even if IF flag is disabled.

In kick callback function, just send platform IPI to make
waiting vcpu exit idle state.

In vcpu_is_preempted callback function, return false directly
because Hyper-V does not provide such interface so far.
