Subject[PATCH v2] KVM: X86: Limit timer frequency to 200ms
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

Anthoine reported:
The period used by Windows change over time but it can be 1 milliseconds
or less. I saw the limit_periodic_timer_frequency print so 500
microseconds is sometimes reached.

As suggested by Paolo, lower the timer frequency limit to a
smaller interval of 200 ms (5000 Hz) to leave some headroom. This
is required due to Windows 10 changing the scheduler tick limit
from 1024 Hz to 2048 Hz.
