Subject: [PATCH 1/3] KVM: Add vCPU running/preempted state

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

This patch reuses the preempted field in kvm_steal_time, and will export 
the vcpu running/pre-empted information to the guest from host. This will 
enable guest to intelligently send ipi to running vcpus and set flag for 
pre-empted vcpus. This will prevent waiting for vcpus that are not running.
