Subject[PATCH] x86/kvm: Introduce boot parameter no-kvm-pvipi
Date
Although host side exposes KVM PV SEND IPI feature to guest side,
guest should still have a chance to disable it.

A typicall case of this parameter:
If the host AMD server enables AVIC feature, the flat mode of APIC
get better performance in the guest.
