Subject[PATCH v2] KVM: LAPIC: Loose fluctuation filter for auto tune lapic_timer_advance_ns
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

5000 guest cycles delta is easy to encounter on desktop, per-vCPU
lapic_timer_advance_ns always keeps at 1000ns initial value, lets
loose fluctuation filter a bit to make auto tune can make some
progress.

v1 -> v2:
* separate defines for ns vs cycles
