When using tick-based accounting, defer the call to account guest time
until after servicing any IRQ(s) that happened in the guest (or
immediately after VM-Exit).  When using tick-based accounting, time is
accounted to the guest when PF_VCPU is set when the tick IRQ handler
runs.  The current approach of unconditionally accounting time in
kvm_guest_exit_irqoff() prevents IRQs that occur in the guest from ever
being processed with PF_VCPU set, since PF_VCPU ends up being set only
during the relatively short VM-Enter sequence, which runs entirely with
IRQs disabled.
