Subject: [PATCH 05/10] hyper-v: use fast hypercall for HVCALL_SIGNAL_EVENT

From: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@...hat.com>

We need to pass only 8 bytes of input for HvSignalEvent which makes it a
perfect fit for fast hypercall. hv_input_signal_event_buffer is not needed
any more and hv_input_signal_event is converted to union for convenience.
