Currently, IRQFD on arm still uses the deferred workqueue mechanism
to inject interrupts into guest, which will likely lead to a busy
context-switching from/to the kworker thread. This overhead is for
no purpose (only in my view ...) and will result in an interrupt
performance degradation.

Implement kvm_arch_set_irq_inatomic() for arm/arm64 to support direct
irqfd MSI injection, by which we can get rid of the annoying latency.
As a result, irqfd MSI intensive scenarios (e.g., DPDK with high packet
processing workloads) will benefit from it.

It seems that only MSI will follow the IRQFD path, did I miss something?

This patch is still under test and sent out for early feedback. If I have
any mis-understanding, please fix me up and let me know. Thanks!
