There are cases folks want to disable spinlock optimization for
debug/test purpose. Xen and hyperv already have parameters "xen_nopvspin"
and "hv_nopvspin" to support that, but kvm doesn't.

The first patch adds that feature to KVM guest with "nopvspin".

For compatibility reason original parameters "xen_nopvspin" and
"hv_nopvspin" are retained and marked obsolete.

v8:
PATCH2: use 'kvm-guest' instead of 'kvm_guest'        [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH3: add a comment to explain missed 'return'      [Sean Christopherson]

v7:
PATCH3: update comment and use goto, add RB              [Vitaly Kuznetsov]

v6:
PATCH1: add Reviewed-by                                  [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
PATCH2: change 'pv' to 'PV', add Reviewed-by             [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
PATCH3: refactor 'if' branch in kvm_spinlock_init()      [Vitaly Kuznetsov]

v5:
PATCH1: new patch to revert a currently unnecessory commit,
        code is simpler a bit after that change.         [Boris Ostrovsky]
PATCH3: fold 'if' statement,add comments on virt_spin_lock_key,
        reorder with PATCH2 to better reflect dependency                               
PATCH4: fold 'if' statement, add Reviewed-by             [Boris Ostrovsky]
PATCH5: add Reviewed-by                                  [Michael Kelley]

v4:
PATCH1: use variable name nopvspin instead of pvspin and
        defined it as __initdata, changed print message,
        updated patch description                     [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH2: remove Suggested-by, use "kvm-guest:" prefix  [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH3: make variable nopvsin and xen_pvspin coexist
        remove Reviewed-by due to code change         [Sean Christopherson]
PATCH4: make variable nopvsin and hv_pvspin coexist   [Sean Christopherson]

v3:
PATCH2: Fix indentation

v2:
PATCH1: pick the print code change into separate PATCH2,
        updated patch description             [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
PATCH2: new patch with print code change      [Vitaly Kuznetsov]
PATCH3: add Reviewed-by                       [Juergen Gross]
