Subject: [PATCH v7 06/11] x86, paravirt: Add interface to support kvm/xen vcpu preempted check

This is to fix some lock holder preemption issues. Some other locks
implementation do a spin loop before acquiring the lock itself.
Currently kernel has an interface of bool vcpu_is_preempted(int cpu). It
takes the cpu as parameter and return true if the cpu is preempted.
Then kernel can break the spin loops upon the retval of
vcpu_is_preempted.

As kernel has used this interface, So lets support it.

To deal with kernel and kvm/xen, add vcpu_is_preempted into struct
pv_lock_ops.

Then kvm or xen could provide their own implementation to support
vcpu_is_preempted.
