Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] KVM: x86: Use static calls to reduce kvm_pmu_ops overhead

This is a successor to the previous patch set [1] from Jason Baron, which
converts kvm_pmu_ops to use static_call. A typical perf use case [2] for
an Intel guest shows good performance gains (results are in patch 0004).

V2 -> V3 Changelog:
- Refine commit messages for __initdata; (Sean)
- Merge the logic of _defining_ and _update_; (Sean)
- Drop EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(kvm_pmu_ops); (Sean)
- Drop the _NULL() variant in the kvm-x86-*-ops.h; (Thanks to Paolo and Sean)
- Drop to export kvm_pmu_is_valid_msr() for nVMX; (Thanks to Sean)
- Based on the kvm/queue;

V1 -> V2 Changelog:
- Export kvm_pmu_is_valid_msr() for nVMX [Sean]
- Land memcpy() above kvm_ops_static_call_update() [Sean]
- Move the pmu_ops to kvm_x86_init_ops and tagged as __initdata. [Sean]
- Move the kvm_ops_static_call_update() to x86.c [Sean]
- Drop kvm_pmu_ops_static_call_update() [Sean]
- Fix WARNING that macros KVM_X86_OP should not use a trailing semicolon

Please note complains a lot about KVM_X86_*_OP macros:
- WARNING: macros should not use a trailing semicolon
- ERROR: Macros with multiple statements should be enclosed in a do - while loop
which could be addressed as a one-time follow-up if needed.
