Subject: [PATCH v2] KVM: LAPIC: Narrow down the kick target vCPU

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

The kick after setting KVM_REQ_PENDING_TIMER is used to handle the timer 
fires on a different pCPU which vCPU is running on, this kick is expensive 
since memory barrier, rcu, preemption disable/enable operations. We don't 
need this kick when injecting already-expired timer, we also should call 
out the VMX preemption timer case, which also passes from_timer_fn=false 
but doesn't need a kick because kvm_lapic_expired_hv_timer() is called 
from the target vCPU.
