Subject[PATCH 5.1 118/128] KVM: lapic: Busy wait for timer to expire when using hv_timer
Date
From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@intel.com>

commit ee66e453db13d4837a0dcf9d43efa7a88603161b upstream.

...now that VMX's preemption timer, i.e. the hv_timer, also adjusts its
programmed time based on lapic_timer_advance_ns. Without the delay, a
guest can see a timer interrupt arrive before the requested time when
KVM is using the hv_timer to emulate the guest's interrupt.

Fixes: c5ce8235cffa0 ("KVM: VMX: Optimize tscdeadline timer latency")
