Subject: [PATCH v3] KVM: X86: Fix softlockup when get the current kvmclock

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpeng.li@...mail.com>

 watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#6 stuck for 22s! [qemu-system-x86:10185]
 CPU: 6 PID: 10185 Comm: qemu-system-x86 Tainted: G           OE   4.14.0-rc4+ #4
 RIP: 0010:kvm_get_time_scale+0x4e/0xa0 [kvm]

This can be reproduced when running kvm-unit-tests/hyperv_stimer.flat and
cpu-hotplug stress simultaneously. __this_cpu_read(cpu_tsc_khz) returns 0
(set in kvmclock_cpu_down_prep()) when the pCPU is unhotplug which results
in kvm_get_time_scale() gets into an infinite loop.

This patch fixes it by treating the unhotplug pCPU as not using master clock.
