Subject: [PATCH v3 2/3] KVM: X86: Implement PV sched yield hypercall

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@...cent.com>

The target vCPUs are in runnable state after vcpu_kick and suitable 
as a yield target. This patch implements the sched yield hypercall.

17% performance increasement of ebizzy benchmark can be observed in an 
over-subscribe environment. (w/ kvm-pv-tlb disabled, testing TLB flush 
call-function IPI-many since call-function is not easy to be trigged 
by userspace workload).
