Subject: [PATCH 1/3] KVM: LAPIC: Make lapic timer unpinned when timer is injected by posted-interrupt

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

Make lapic timer unpinned when timer is injected by posted-interrupt,
the emulated timer can be offload to the housekeeping cpus.

This patch introduces a new kvm module parameter, it is false by default.
The host admin can enable it after fine tuned, e.g. dedicated instances 
scenario w/ nohz_full cover the pCPUs which vCPUs resident, several pCPUs 
surplus for housekeeping, disable mwait/hlt/pause vmexits to occupy the 
pCPUs, fortunately preemption timer is disabled after mwait is exposed 
to guest which makes emulated timer offload can be possible.
