[PATCH] KVM: LAPIC: Per vCPU control over kvm_can_post_timer_interrupt

From: Aili Yao <yaoaili@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

When we isolate some pyhiscal cores, We may not use them for kvm guests,
We may use them for other purposes like DPDK, or we can make some kvm
guests isolated and some not, the global judgement pi_inject_timer is
not enough; We may make wrong decisions:

In such a scenario, the guests without isolated cores will not be
permitted to use vmx preemption timer, and tscdeadline fastpath also be
disabled, both will lead to performance penalty.

So check whether the vcpu->cpu is isolated, if not, don't post timer
