I will check this. Thanks!

Will modify them.

Oh, sorry for such error.

Per Microsoft Hypervisor Top Level Functional Specification, the input
parameter of HVCALL_NOTIFY_LONG_SPIN_WAIT is defined as below:

SpinwaitInfo – Specifies the accumulated count the guest was spinning.

So, it is increased when guest is spinning and reduced when spinlock is
released.

I may add comments to explain it.

Per above spec, reading HV_X64_MSR_GUEST_IDLE can make guest idle.

I will add comment here.

PV_CALLEE_SAVE_REGS_THUNK definition is below.

#define PV_CALLEE_SAVE_REGS_THUNK(func) \
extern typeof(func) __raw_callee_save_##func; \
......

So, the hv_vcpu_is_preempted cannot be declared as 'static'. Otherwise,
the make fails with below info.

arch/x86/hyperv/hv_spinlock.o: In function `__raw_callee_save_hv_vcpu_is_preempted':
hv_spinlock.c:(.text+0xd): undefined reference to `hv_vcpu_is_preempted'

Got it. Thanks!
