Subject[PATCH v2 5/9] KVM: LAPIC: Narrow down the kick target vCPU
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

The kick after setting KVM_REQ_PENDING_TIMER is used to handle the timer
fires on a different pCPU which vCPU is running on, this kick is expensive
since memory barrier, rcu, preemption disable/enable operations. We don't
need this kick when injecting already-expired timer, we also should call
out the VMX preemption timer case, which also passes from_timer_fn=false
but doesn't need a kick because kvm_lapic_expired_hv_timer() is called
from the target vCPU.
