I thought HvSpinWaitInfo is used to notify hypervisor the spin number
which is different with vcpu_is_preempted. So I did not consider
vcpu_is_preempted.

But HvSpinWaitInfo is a quite simple function and could be combined
with vcpu_is_preempted together. So I think it is OK to use
vcpu_is_preempted to make codes clean. I will have a try.
