So Linus' patch mostly fixes smp_call_function_single_async() which is
not what you're using.

It would be very good to see traces of other CPUs; if for some reason
the target CPU doesn't get around to running your callback, then we'll
forever wait on it.

loaded_vmcs_clear() uses smp_call_function_single(.wait = 1), that
should work as before.
