Subject[PATCH 3/3] KVM: s390: clear kicked_mask if not idle after set
The idea behind kicked mask is that we should not re-kick a vcpu
from __airqs_kick_single_vcpu() that is already in the middle of
being kicked by the same function.

If however the vcpu that was idle before when the idle_mask was
examined, is not idle any more after the kicked_mask is set, that
means that we don't need to kick, and that we need to clear the
bit we just set because we may be beyond the point where it would
get cleared in the wake-up process. Since the time window is short,
this is probably more a theoretical than a practical thing: the race
window is small.

To get things harmonized let us also move the clear from vcpu_pre_run()
to __unset_cpu_idle().
