SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] KVM: X86: Limit timer frequency to 200ms

> 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.
