With the boot parameter "hv_nopvspin" specified a Hyperv guest should
not make use of paravirt spinlocks, but behave as if running on bare
metal. This is not true, however, as the qspinlock code will fall back
to a test-and-set scheme when it is detecting a hypervisor.
In order to avoid this disable the virt_spin_lock_key.
Same change for XEN is already in Commit e6fd28eb3522

This should be combined in the conditional under it, which already
attempts to disable PV spinlocks, note how hv_pvspin is checked there.
hc_pvspin isn't the only reason we would disable PV spinlocks on hyperv.
Also, there's no need for the unlikely() here, it's only getting called
