Subject: [PATCH v7 1/2] KVM: LAPIC: Make lapic timer unpinned
Date: Sat,  6 Jul 2019 09:26:50 +0800
Message-ID: <1562376411-3533-2-git-send-email-wanpengli@tencent.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1562376411-3533-1-git-send-email-wanpengli@tencent.com>

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

Commit 61abdbe0bcc2 ("kvm: x86: make lapic hrtimer pinned") pinned the
lapic timer to avoid to wait until the next kvm exit for the guest to
see KVM_REQ_PENDING_TIMER set. There is another solution to give a kick
after setting the KVM_REQ_PENDING_TIMER bit, make lapic timer unpinned
will be used in follow up patches.
