Subject: [PATCH] KVM: x86: replace do_div with div64_ul

Reported by coccinelle, there is a do_div call that does
64-by-32 divisions even in 64bit platforms, this patch will
move it to div64_ul macro that will decide the correct
division function for the platform underneath. The output
the warning follows:

arch/x86/kvm/lapic.c:1948:1-7: WARNING: do_div() does a 64-by-32 division, please consider using div64_ul instead.
