Subject[PATCH] Revert "locking/pvqspinlock: Don't wait if vCPU is preempted"
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

This patch reverts commit 75437bb304b20 (locking/pvqspinlock: Don't wait if
vCPU is preempted), we found great regression caused by this commit.

Xeon Skylake box, 2 sockets, 40 cores, 80 threads, three VMs, each is 80 vCPUs.
The score of ebizzy -M can reduce from 13000-14000 records/s to 1700-1800
records/s with this commit.

vanilla + w/o kvm optimizes vanilla 1700-1800 records/s
vanilla + w/o kvm optimizes vanilla + revert 13000-14000 records/s
vanilla + w/ kvm optimizes vanilla 4500-5000 records/s
vanilla + w/ kvm optimizes vanilla + revert 14000-15500 records/s

Exit from aggressive wait-early mechanism can result in yield premature and
incur extra scheduling latency in over-subscribe scenario.

kvm optimizes:
[1] commit d73eb57b80b (KVM: Boost vCPUs that are delivering interrupts)
[2] commit 266e85a5ec9 (KVM: X86: Boost queue head vCPU to mitigate lock waiter preemption)
