We really want to avoid memory allocation for cpumask on this path and
that's what kvm_make_all_cpus_request() currently does (when
CPUMASK_OFFSTACK). vcpu bitmap is probably OK as KVM_MAX_VCPUS is much
lower.

Making cpumask allocation avoidable leads us to the following API:

bool kvm_make_vcpus_request_mask(struct kvm *kvm, unsigned int req,
long *vcpu_bitmap, cpumask_var_t tmp);

or, if we want to prettify this a little bit, we may end up with the
following pair:

bool kvm_make_vcpus_request_mask(struct kvm *kvm, unsigned int req,
long *vcpu_bitmap);

bool __kvm_make_vcpus_request_mask(struct kvm *kvm, unsigned int req,
long *vcpu_bitmap, cpumask_var_t tmp);

and from hyperv code we'll use the later. With this, no code duplication
is required.

Does this look acceptable?
