Subject[patch 07/12] KVM: LAPIC: Mark hrtimer to expire in hard interrupt context
From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

On PREEMPT_RT enabled kernels unmarked hrtimers are moved into soft
interrupt expiry mode by default.

While that's not a functional requirement for the KVM local APIC timer
emulation, it's a latency issue which can be avoided by marking the timer
so hard interrupt context expiry is enforced.

No functional change.

[ tglx: Split out from larger combo patch. Add changelog. ]
