Subject: [PATCH 2/6] KVM: selftests: Avoid flooding debug log while populating memory

Peter Xu pointed out that a log message printed while waiting for the
memory population phase of the dirty_log_perf_test will flood the debug
logs as there is no delay after printing the message. Since the message
does not provide much value anyway, remove it.
