Subject: [PATCH 2/3] kvm: better handling for kvm halt polling

Add the new functions prepare_to_busy_poll() and friends to
kvm_vcpu_block. The busy polling cpu will be considered an
idle target during wake up balancing.

cpu_relax is also added to the polling loop to improve the performance
of other hw threads sharing the busy polling core.
