Subject[PATCH RESEND 3/5] KVM: LAPIC: Micro optimize IPI latency
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

This patch optimizes the virtual IPI emulation sequence:

write ICR2 write ICR2
write ICR read ICR2
read ICR ==> send virtual IPI
read ICR2 write ICR
send virtual IPI

It can reduce kvm-unit-tests/vmexit.flat IPI testing latency(from sender
send IPI to sender receive the ACK) from 3319 cycles to 3203 cycles on
SKylake server.
